Here's a little about me: I attended NAU on full scholarship from 2009- 2013 and gradudated with a degree in Choral music education and a degree in piano performance. I am going into my 6th year as an accompanist with the Phoenix Children's Chorus and am thrilled to be performing and touring to Boston with the top high school group, Encore, this year. I also teach private piano and voice lessons. I am a member of various professional music organizations including MTNA, ACDA, SAI, AMEA, and NSCS. In addition to my musical activities, I teach group fitness in various gyms throughout the greater Phoenix area and love spending time with my puppy Archibald, my husband Brett, and my niece and nephew. I am excited to share the gift of music with my students during the 2019-2020 school year!
