I have always had a passion for music, and I've always been a musician. I earned a B.A. in the Liberal Arts with a major in Music History and Theory from Oberlin College, and then I received a Fulbright grant to study music and design university-level music curriculum in Lima, Peru. Upon completing the grant, I chose to stay in Lima, where I continued to work as a music educator (as well as starting a family! My daughter was born in Lima in 2014). I then earned a Master of Music with a concentration in Music Education from Boston University. I love working in the DCI community because the arts are so highly valued, and I am so excited to again work with our kids to create and talk about music!
