On the Wild Atlantic Way in the West of Ireland is where my passion for music began…My hometown of Galway is a vibrant hub for music and the Arts, a true inspiration for any musician.

Being immersed in this environment led me to complete my Bachelor of Music degree, and PGDE in University College Cork. Here I formed the basis of my singing career in Jazz as well as expanding my love of Musical Theatre.

I was lucky enough to receive a scholarship from UCC, which provided me with an excellent opportunity to complete my final year at Wesleyan, Connecticut where I majored in Musical Theatre. This was a real stepping-stone for me and allowed me to travel to New York in order to work within the Arts & Education.

After finishing my studies I became an active member of the Performing Arts community, singing in my own Jazz trio as well as many off-Broadway productions.

My husband and I moved to Dubai a couple of years ago and it’s been an amazing experience to date! I very much enjoy teaching Music and I am really excited to have the chance to collaborate with Juilliard in order to deliver a fantastic music curriculum to our students.
