Well hello there studio owners!

I’m Yong and it would be my absolute honor to be your partner in this adventure into technology! I’m on a mission to help you not only raise smarter kids through the arts but to unleash your child’s Super Powers!

I a former professional dancer, world traveler, and curious soul. I currently lives at the base of the Ruby Mountains in Nevada with my husband, two dancing daughters, and a menagerie of creatures.

I’ve been unleashing Super Powers in kids of all ages since 2001 when I founded Academy of the Arts in Elko, NV. I also host a weekly podcast for parents entitled the Raising smART Kids 2.0, and I released my first book, Raising A Superhero: How to Unleash Your Child’s 8 Super Powers & Propel Learning Through the Arts, on May 2016, (on the same day we moved into a new facility because I just didn’t have enough on my plate ? ).

I love learning and am personal development junkie as well as a geek at heart. Give me some tech like websites to play with and I’m one happy camper!

Speaking of learning, I have a couple of degrees that I spent years earning–a Master of Science Degree in Kinesiology & Health from the University of Wyoming and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Education from the University of Nevada. But it wasn’t until I became a parent that the REAL learning began. I’m sure you know exactly what I mean…

In my spare time, I can be found getting artsy and snuggling up with my daughters, tromping through the gorgeous outdoors with our dog, enjoying a rare date night with my husband, or savoring a good book with a great cup of coffee.
