I have been steeped in an eclectic mix of Broadway, Classical, Pop, Bluegrass, and more since birth. Every member of my family played a variety of instruments including; Clarinet, Guitar, Piano, Voice, Flute, and more.
I started learning to read music at 5, began taking Piano Lessons at age 8 with Maxine Salvatore, and voice lessons at age 13 with Christine Weidinger. As I pursued voice I quickly found out I had a passion and talent for opera, performing roles such as Zerlina from Don Giovanni, and The Queen of the Night from Die Zauberflote before leaving high school. I also have had the honor of being a featured soloist with the North Carolina Symphony, Master Chorale and Ballet.
In college, I pursued a Bachelor of Arts in Music at Winthrop University where I studied Voice with John Fowler and Kristopher Irmiter, and Piano with Dr. Matthew Manwarren. Since leaving college I have continued to perform professionally as a Vocalist and Pianist, while pursuing a full time career as a voice and piano teacher both privately and as an adjunct professor at William Peace University.
