I have recently settled back in Grand Rapids, where I grew up, though my singing career has brought me all over the world. I have been fortunate to sing in productions at Welsh National Opera, Opera Grand Rapids, Toledo Opera, Dubai Opera, and Castleton Opera, in the Royal Opera House Muscat, and have sung recitals throughout Europe, the United Arab Emirates, and the US. I have a Bachelor of Music in Musical Theatre Performance from Arizona State University, a Master of Music in Voice and Opera Literature from Northwestern University where I also taught voice lessons as a graduate assistant, and a Master of Arts in Opera Performance from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff. I have taught private voice lessons in my home studio, in private and public schools, and in music schools over the last decade. I am passionate about vocal science and helping students find joy in singing!
When I'm not singing, I love yoga, traveling, playing games with my five year old, and curling up with a cup of tea and a good book!
