Degrees and Certifications:
This is my 14th year teaching elementary music. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Music Education with a vocal emphasis from The College of Wooster and am pursing my Master's in Music Education from The Ohio State University. In addition to singing, I also play the piano and guitar and am learning the ukulele.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two sons, Jack (9) and Oliver (7), and Link, our Yorkshire Terrier. I love reading, sewing, hand embroidery and DIY projects. My family enjoys making music, watching all the Star Wars movies, being outside, attending our church, and going on Pokemon Go hunts!
I was born in Rochester, NY and grew up outside of Pittsburgh, PA.
Some of my favorite kid's books that you can sing include The Soup Opera by Jim Gill, Don't Laugh at Me by Shamblin and Seskin and anything published by Barefoot Books, such as Portside Pirates. Kid's CDs by Jim Gill and Charlotte Diamond are some of my favorites, as well! Check them out!
