Voice 385-202-3064

I love the gift of song. I received my Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance back East from George Mason University in 2007, and graduated Summa Cum Laude. I have sung at the Department of State in Washington, DC, as well as several competitions. Since moving to Utah in 2008 I have studied both with Dr. Carol Ann Allred and Dr. Arden Hopkin. In 2009 I became a member of the Volunteer Music Crew at Primary Children's Medical Center, and have had the wonderful experience of singing for patients and their families on a regular basis. I have thoroughly enjoyed performing in several local productions, my favorites being Savior of the World, the role of Mabel in Pirates of Penzance, and Rapunzel in Into the Woods. I love teaching voice, from Classical to Music Theater, and believe everyone who wants to sing should be given the opportunity. I especially enjoy teaching beginning singers and those who experience performance anxiety. I offer a warm and friendly environment to help singers become more confident in their own gift of song.
