I was born and raised in Wisconsin. I started my music career at the age of 5 with piano lessons. When I was in 4th grade, I started cello. By the time I was in 6th grade, I was helping the music teacher with beginning students. I graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. After college, I moved to Los Angeles to become a professional cellist. I lived there for ten years. I moved to Apache Junction and pursued my Masters in Education. I currently teach the orchestra at AJHS, CCJH as well as Strings at Desert Vista Elementary School, Four Peaks Elementary School and Peralta Trails Elementary School.
