The NAEA was founded in 1947 and is the premier professional membership organization exclusively for visual arts and design education professionals in the United States.

Fifi’s appointment as a member of the editorial board of the journal Art Education positions her on one of the most accredited editorial boards in the field of arts education. Fifi will be one of the few women members of the Caribbean editorial board to have held this post.
