My love for performing started with my obsession with The Sound of Music in preschool. I knew from the moment Maria ran up the hills singing out to the Austrian countryside, that I had to be a singer.
I started teaching voice in high school, where I instantly feIl in love with helping people find their voice and build their confidence. Throughout the years I have seen my students perform across the state both in community and professional settings.
My first love is musical theatre. The unique power theatre has to tell stories and connect to its' audience inspires me to be a better performer, and better teacher. I have performed at several venues across the state and in New York City, in such roles as Jerusha Abbott in Daddy Long Legs, Wednesday in The Addams Family, and Philia in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. I am also the assistant director of the children's program at the Midvale Main St Theatre.
I received my education through the Berklee College of Music, where I worked with world-renowned vocalists and musicians. I teach using the principles of Somatic Voicework™ The LoVetri Method, which is based in physical awareness, focusing on breath support, resonance, registration, and vocal health.
"Why?" It's the question I asked several of my voice teachers growing up. It is important to me that my students not only learn healthy techniques, but why we do what we do.
When I'm not teaching voice, I am either in scrubs or a princess dress. In addition to my vocal studio, I also run the character company, "Wish Upon a Party," and work as a pediatric medical assistant.
