Teaching since:

I am originally from New Jersey and began taking lessons myself when I was just 4 years old. I eventually pursued undergraduate degrees in viola performance and music education at Rutgers University. After earning my bachelor's I worked as an elementary school music teacher in Princeton, New Jersey. It was such a great experience and pleasure to influence so many young lives. I concurrently was principal violist of the orchestra Sinfonietta Nova and worked as a freelance musician throughout NJ, NYC and Philadelphia. I was so fortunate to be offered a position in the Masters degree program at Northwestern's Bienen School of Music, and have been loving my relocation to Chicago!

Aside from music, I love to run, kayak, and cook ... who am I kidding, I love to eat!
