Welcome back to another year of music! This is my 4th year teaching music at A-O Elementary.

About Me:

I was born in Lowell, Massachusetts and raised in Charlottesville, Virginia. I received my Bachelor’s degree in K-12 Music Education at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. My husband is also a musician, and has a masters degree in percussion from UNCG. He teaches privately and plays with various ensembles and groups throughout the community. We live in the Greensboro area with our sweet Australian Cattle Dog named Logan. While I had to learn how to play ALL of the traditional band and orchestra instruments to get my degree; I specialize in flute, piano, and voice. I have performed many major works from Star Wars with the VCU Symphony to Beethoven’s Ninth with the Richmond Symphony!

Currently, I play flute as a freelancer, and I sing soprano with the Bel Canto Company and Musica Anima.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
