After finishing a Bachelor of Music degree in piano at Brigham Young University, I moved to Northern Virginia where I established a thriving private piano studio while attended graduate school at the University of Maryland. My students were often winners and finalists in competitions and festivals and many of them were accepted to music schools I in the area. There I maintained an active performing schedule, both as a recording, solo and collaborative artist and was a sought-after adjudicator in my local music chapter.
After completing my Doctorate in Musical Arts, my husband and I and our four children embarked on a new chapter in our life by moving around the world with the US State Department. This opportunity has allowed me to perform and collaborate with artists around the world in places like Mexico, Kenya, and Tanzania.
Upon arriving in Costa Rica, I started working for Country Day School as the Elementary Music teacher. This year I am launching a piano lab elective in the Middle School. I am enjoying being in the classroom and out of the private studio because I can bring the love of music to more students. We have been making music together for two years and have been successful in producing all- school musical shows that bring together the whole school community.
In my free time, I like to spend it with my family discovering the new countries where we live.
My favorite hobby is making music with my friends.
