Since earning my bachelor's degree in Musical Theatre from Indiana University in 2005, I have had the privilege of gaining valuable experience in teaching young people about music and dance in the St. Louis and Indianapolis areas. I made my way into public education in 2009, working in the Franklin Community Schools as a middle school choral director and assistant high school choral director/accompanist. While teaching at Franklin, I earned my Pk-12 Music Education degree from Indiana Wesleyan. I joined the staff at Pine Ridge in 2014 as the Pk-4 music teacher. I also teach 6th grade music at Cedar Crest.
