I am a performer and teacher based in the Chicago area. I recently graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor of Arts in Music with an emphasis in Flute Performance where my principal teachers were Sarah Frisof and Michael Gordon. I was awarded placement in the University Honors Recital in 2016 and I am accomplished ensemble player. I was selected by the St. Louis Flute Society in 2017 as a performer for their masterclass with Demarre McGill and I am also an alumna of Credo Flute at Elmhurst College.
In 2017, I was principal flutist in the University of Kansas Symphony Orchestra’s production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni. I also served as principal flute of the university’s Wind Ensemble for the 2018 premiere of Kevin Walczyks’ “Symphony #5: Freedom from Fear” at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. I can be heard in 2019 on the album recording of Walczyks’ work to be released by Naxos Records.
