  • I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Eat N'Park, french fries on sandwiches and salads are the best).

  • I bleed blue and white as I attended Penn State University (the Creamery has the best ice cream).
  • I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance and a Master's Degree in Music Education.
  • I was a Castmemeber (violinist) for Walt Disney World. I performed in their shows and weddings (Cinderella's glass slipper and carriage do make appearances during weddings).
  • I have played with the Orlando Philharmonic, Florida Chamber Orchestra, and currently play with the National String Symphonia.
  • I have taught middle and high school orchestra for over eight years.
  • I enjoy any outisde activity and run almost daily so I can eat chocolate chip cookies.
  • I have water and coffee running through my veins all day.
