I'm a classically trained singer who studied at the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and The Ohio State, receiving a doctoral degree in vocal performance. I'm also learning to become a speech pathologist, so I am all about healthy, free singing and rehabilitation of habits to sing efficiently and beautifully.
I have been teaching professionally for over twenty years both privately and at universities like Wright State in Fairborn, Ohio, Viterbo University in LaCrosse, Wisconsin and now at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. In the past year, I've been learning a lot about more contemporary styles of music and I am now more comfortable teaching some pop, theatre, and jazz styles to my students.
My students would say my teaching is accessible and fun regardless of your level of study.

She is able to tailor communicating concepts and techniques to each individual student according to their learning style.
