From the Court to the Kiln: A WWU Basketball Star's Journey of Discovery

When an injury took WWU Women's Basketball player Dani Iwami off the courts, her student journey took an interesting turn. Along the way she connected with Jennifer Anable and Ryan Kelly of  WWU Art & Art History and discovered a passion she didn't know she had.

"Jennifer Anable who teaches the Ceramics for non-majors worked with Dani and helped foster her love of ceramics," said Ryan Kelly, Associate Professor, Ceramics. "Then I swooped in and invited her to take my upper level classes."

"Dani is definitely making it happen, and took advantage of every opportunity she had while she was here at Western."
