About Me

 I was born and raised in the frozen north of Duluth Minnesota. I joined orchestra on viola in 4th grade, and band on baritone in 5th. I have loved performing music ever since. From that point on I have taken part in as many performing opportunities as possible, from jazz ensemble, to marching band, to the Duluth Superior Youth Symphony. I attended the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and received my Bachelor's in Music Education. 

After teaching high school band and guitar for six years in the small Wisconsin town of Lake Mills, I decided it was time for a new adventure. My hobbies include rock climbing, bike racing, and hiking, so Colorado seemed an obvious place to explore. 

I am very excited to be able to share my knowledge and passion for music education with the students of the Columbine Articulation Area.

   I currently live in the beautiful town of Golden with my dog Alfie.
