    I am so excited to make music with you at Lawrence Intermediate School!

    I teach 4th grade general music, 4th, 5th and 6th grade choir, and Pitch Black! I also co-run the LIS Musical! 

    I received my Bachelor of Music from Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ. During my time at Westminster, I:

    - I assistant directed the co-ed a cappella ensemble The Deaftones! We competed in competitions (the same one from Pitch Perfect!), sang for the community, and even went on a tour of the East Coast!

    - I sang with the Westminster Williamson Voices! We sang concerts throughout New Jersey and New York City, including the American premiere of James Whitbourn's Annelies, based on The Diary of Anne Frank. We were also the choir in residence at the Choral Institute of Oxford in Oxford, UK. There, we participated in numerous clinics and concerts.

    - I sang with the Westminster Symphonic Choir! We sang concerts around New Jersey and New York including the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia and Carnegie Hall in NYC!

    I received my teaching certification from Rider University in Lawrenceville, NJ.

    I am a teaching artist at McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton, NJ!

    I love playing ukulele and piano, hiking, cooking and singing!
