I am a professional opera singer and have studied diction and languages for 12 years. I have a special musican’s ear for the subtleties of language and a lot of tools to help you reduce your accent and speak English like it’s your first language! As someone who is often performing in other languages myself, I am personally acquainted with the challenges of mastering pronunciation and accents and I am excited about sharing what I’ve learned in my own journey with others!

I am a professional opera singer with a love for languages. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a Bachelors in Voice, and went on to study opera performance at the Opera Institute at Boston Universities. Since then, I've been working as a singer for over 10 years!
I have to sing in a lot of languages for my job, and I'm here to give you some of the tools I use when mastering pronunciation for your own accent reduction pursuits.
I am also a writer and lover of the English language (my mother is a lifelong English teacher), and love sharing this tough-to-master language with others.
A lot of the skills I have as a singer are so helpful for learning how to pronounce languages correctly AND how to support your voice to keep it healthy.
I can also help you in your own singing development and improvement! I can teach you basic and advanced technical exercises to increase your breath support, tone quality, and overall musicianship.
I look forward to meeting and working with you!
