I have been an orchestra Magnet teacher since 1993! Prior to teaching, my musical background and training was begun in Huntsville in the Rocket City. I played in the Huntsville Youth Orchestra and then became one of the youngest members of the Huntsville Symphony while still in High School. My first teaching position was in Montgomery, Alabama teaching over 160 elementary students and 60 middle! It is an incredible pleasure to be with AAA. Helping turn musical/instrumental curiosity and desire into skill and artform and musicianship for each student to the best of our capacities is what drives me!
Family, son in High School and his Dad is a security installation specialist (and a musician too!) AAA is a spectacular opportunity for each of us to endeavor and delight in working towards being better together.
Master’s in Education and Music-UAB
B.A. West Chester University and UAH

I have been the principal violinist of the professional string quartet named ‘Felicity.’ I had a former career as the personnel manager of the Huntsville Symphony. I went to school in Pennsylvania and loved it and then came back to Huntsville and completed both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees.
I love to swim laps and ride a bicycle for exercise. When I was in High School, I was a very dedicated cheerleader with the Athletics Department of J.O.Johnson High School-Go Jaguars!
