Degrees and Certifications:
I am originally from the Pittsburgh, PA area, yet spent most of my school years in Scottsdale, Arizona. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from The Pennsylvania State University and a Master's in Music Education from The George Mason University.
This is my 11th year teaching orchestra in Loudoun County, and my 1st year teaching at Stone Bridge! My previous teaching experience occurred at Eagle Ridge Middle School. I am thrilled to stay in the Ashburn area, and work with these amazing students.
My husband and I live in Jefferson, MD, with our son – Giorgio (5 years old), and daughter – Ellena (2 years old). I love being a parent, and can barely remember my life without our children! I don't have nearly as much spare time anymore, but when I get a chance, I enjoy reading (especially fantasy books), playing my viola, boating/fishing, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
