My love for singing began during my time as a chorister in my church choir as a child, and I haven’t stopped since! I received my Bachelor’s in Vocal Performance from Illinois Wesleyan University, where I performed as Poppea in Monteverdi’s L'incoronazione di Poppea and Susanna in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro, as well placing as a finalist in the Henry Charles Memorial Concerto-Aria competition. In Chicago you can find me walking dogs, singing with the St. James Episcopal Cathedral Choir, eating at Stan’s Donuts, and at open mics performing classical music accompanied by my partner on electric guitar!
I am a classically trained singer, but I love to teach singers with interests in many different singing styles! I’m a firm believer that classical singing technique can be the foundation for just about any style of Western singing. My goal is to help my students find their unique sound and give them the technique to safely, efficiently, and proudly sing an assortment of music genres.
What is a highlight from your performing career?
Performing as Susanna in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro alongside many dear friends!
