I am so excited to be at Swanson Elementary this year! I taught music at Stukey Elementary in 2007-2012 and then worked at Swallow Hill Music until the summer of 2018. I've been involved in music for most of my life and studied music education at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater.

I love all different types of music and play a little bit of guitar, ukulele, banjo and trumpet. I want my students to be proficient in music but walk away from class with a life long love of music.

When I'm not teaching or playing music, I love hanging out with my family and dog as well as hiking, biking and running. I'm looking forward to a joyful year of music making at Swanson!
