About Me

I am a future educator and very passionate about music.  I am excited to be graduating with a Bachelors of Music Education degree from Northern Michigan University in December 2010. 

At Northern, I had many wonderful opportunities.  I had the privilege to help build and transform a show choir by making the group become auditioned, getting uniforms, and choreographing the shows for two semesters.  I also attended many conferences such as the United Conference, Special Education Conference, the Upper Peninsula Indian Education Conference and the Michigan Music Conference in 2009, 2010, and 2011. 

While at Northern I was in the Music Department opera production of “The Gondoliers” as Novella and I was Granny in a children’s opera called “Little Red Walking Hood”.  In winter of 2011 I will also be participating in the children’s opera  “Pinocchio”.  Currently, I am in the NMU musical “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”.

In the summer of 2009 I counseled for an intense music camp called Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp for both middle school and high school sessions.

Lastly I student taught in a Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade experience at Aspen Ridge Elementary and fifth through 8th at Bothwell Middle School where I was pushed and challenged to do well in all grade levels.

Throughout my high school and college life I had been privilege to be  apart of elite choral ensembles such as High School Chorale, State Honors Choir, All-State Honor Choir, Northern Michigan University Choir, NMU Vocal Jazz, and SATB Ensemble at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp.  I work hard in everything I do and I continue to strive and perfect my own skills.  My high school choral teacher once said that “music is not a class, it is an experience” and I believe that whole heartedly.
