I was born and raised in West Virginia and attended West Virginia University for my bachelors in music education with an emphasis in percussion. I taught in Maryland for 3 years before deciding to move to Austin, TX. I have been in Austin since 2009 and love it here! I have taught music in private, public, IB, and title 1 schools. I have experience teaching prek-12 grade classes with a wide variety of musical focuses. Classes I have previously taught include general music, choir, guitar, percussion, concert band, and marching band. In my spare time I like to cook, read, and spend time with my dog.
