After working in theatres in San Deigo, Atlanta and Washington D.C., she moved to New York City in 1979, where she met husband Jeffrey Venho (currently the RSS Music Department Chair), and enjoyed a successful career as an actress, singer dancer. She turned her attention to directing youth theatre, while working at the lower school front desk as her children, Aili and Cliff, began attending the Rudolf Steiner School.

In 2001, she was given the opportunity to teach in the high school, where she reaffirmed her passion for working with young people, and eventually took over the position of RSS Drama Director in 2006. Clio holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the United States International University School of Performing Arts, a certificate in directing from Yale University, a certificate in the study of Shakespeare from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and has training in speech and drama training from the Threefold Educational Foundation. Daughter, Aili, is a professional singer/dancer/actress who is an adjunct RSS faculty member in vocal instruction, and often assists with our school drama productions. Son, Cliff, who is finishing his studies in Eurythmy in Spring Vally, NY., is employed at The Green Meadow Waldorf School and recently worked as a translator (German to English) for WECAN.
