And my goal is to help aspiring performers to pursue a life on stage! As a voice instructor & coach, I love helping folx work in a variety of styles especially music theatre and contemporary music. Being versatile means you'll always find work!
For the past few years, I've been active in the theatre scene in Grand Rapids both on stage and off. Some of my favorite shows have been Ragtime (Keys III), Summer Repertory Theatre Intensive, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Annie, and the Little Mermaid at Grand Rapids Civic Theatre. Most recently, I music directed Side By Side By Sondheim at Grand Valley State University and I'm currently music directing Kinky Boots for GRCT.
I'm grateful to have worked with some incredible teachers including Dr. William F. DeSanto, Dr. Lynda Dunn, and Dr. Linda Dykstra who for inspired me to seek a career in music.
