I have been an active performer in both the operatic and concert repertory. In the past few years, I have been a soloist at Carnegie Hall, the Chicago Theater, in the Toledo Orchestra’s Christmas concert, and at Chicago’s Ravinia Festival. I originated the role of Dari in Lookinglass Theater at Ravinia’s production of SitaRam. Recent opera credits include Dorabella in Cosě Fan Tutte and Mme Lidoine in Dialogues des Carmélites, as well as Beppe (L'Amico Fritz) in 2005 in Italy. She has also performed scenes from L’Elisir D’Amore (Adina), The Rape of Lucretia (Female Chorus), Der Freischütz (Agathe), Die Fledermaus (Rosalinde), Madama Butterfly (title role), Arabella (title role), Suor Angelica (title role), Don Giovanni (Donna Anna, Donna Elvira), and Medea (Glauce). I received her Bachelor’s of Music from the Oberlin Conservatory and my Masters from Indiana University.
I began training as a violinist, studying with teachers at the Cleveland Institute of Music, DePaul University, and the Oberlin conservatory for seventeen years. From violin, my interests expanded into vocal music, and became a member of the Chicago Children's Choir for ten years. From there, I decided to pursue a career in classical music, focusing on voice. As a teacher of singing, I'm passionate about my students making progress in a fun and healthy way. If a student is interested in getting a thorough technique in the fundamentals of singing, they can then go on to sing any type of music they choose in the healthiest and easiest manner possible. I have taught professionally at the Oberlin Conservatory's Secondary Lessons program, Avon Lake School of Music, and am a current teacher at UNCSA's Community Music School, as well as maintaining my own private studio. I have worked with all levels, from teenagers looking to do well at a talent show and adults wanting to learn to match pitch to budding professional singers.
