I always knew I wanted to teach, and private lessons are a wonderful way to connect with students and see real growth. After studying voice at University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, I pursued inner-city teaching opportunities. I have a passion for teaching voice to students in the city, so I began teaching in Milwaukee Public Schools in 2013 at Reagan IB High School. I have enjoyed teaching choir as well as private voice for my students at Reagan. I continually seek out performance opportunities for my students to challenge their growth and encourage new experiences. Currently, I reside in Milwaukee, WI with my husband and sing with Bel Canto Chorus.

I believe that absolutely anyone can learn to sing, it just takes practice and patience. I use classical vocal techniques to help my students achieve their goals, no matter what sort of singing they plan to do. Healthy singing is the key to success, and I work with students to find their voice in a healthy way. I use Kodaly's method of Solfeggio to learn music and believe sight reading is an important skill to be cultivated. I believe that a good musical foundation consists of an understanding of music theory, sightreading techniques, and knowing your own voice.
