I was born in Pittsburgh, raised in Raleigh, and earned a Bachelor of Music Education from UNCG with a dual focus in instrumental and choral music. This is my 29th year of teaching school band, as well as over 30 years as a vocal soloist and church music director. I love jazz, musical theater, music technology, playing and singing music, as well as the Pittsburgh Steelers, Disney’s Goofy, and Giraffes. I will be finishing an MS in Learning Experience Design and Educational Technology in December 2023. My daughter and son are out of high school and I feel like a puppy that cannot stop wagging his tail to be at PSPA!
