I am a Denver native–born and raised! I grew up and currently still live in the Southwest area of Denver as well as graduated from DPS; Abraham Lincoln High School alumni turned Commander! I am classically trained on Viola and I specialize in string instruments. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Music Education with an emphasis in Instrumental Music.from Metropolitan State University of Denver, where I also studied performance under Phillip Stevens, resident Colorado Symphony Orchestra musician. I have performed and coached for the DPS Citywide Orchestra from 2008-2015 and performed with the MSU Denver Symphony Orchestra from 2013-2017.
I have two older sisters, I love creating and performing music and building relationships with my students and their families. Traveling is a passion of mine and when I’m at home I spend a lot of time with my pug named Toby.
