I was born and raised in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago. Growing up, I spent most of my time performing onstage with various choral groups and musical theatre companies. While completing my undergrad, I studied abroad in Salzburg, Austria, where I was able to immerse myself in Austrian culture and developed a love for foreign lands. After completing my degree in music education, I moved to Hong Kong for a year-long internship, and lived in Mainland China for three years working as a music teacher.
I am thrilled to be back for my second year at BISC-LP! I bring all the experience and knowledge I acquired from my life abroad, and share it with my students. I truly believe unique and global opportunities enhance every student's learning experience. Exposure to international cultures allows students to develop their open-mindedness skills, and helps them to become global leaders.
