- Why you teach at NMS - I grew up taking lessons at NMS! The wonderful education I received through many years of lessons at NMS shaped me into the musician and person I am today. I believe that music lessons had a positive influence on every aspect of my life. I am honored to be able to share the lessons I learned and the appreciation of music that my teacher instilled in me.
- Fun fact about you - I am an animal lover and enjoy travelling. Last year, my husband and I vacationed in South Africa and went on a number of safaris. It was incredible!
