Degrees and Certifications:
I have been teaching music for over 11 years. I LOVE what I do! I continue to look for new ideas to bring into the classroom to help students learn and connect with music on a personal level.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Communication with a focus in Public Relations from Columbus State University and a minor in Music. I hold a Masters in Arts and Teaching from Piedmont College. My primary instrument is Cello and I have studied it since 1992. I love performing and teaching others to master it as well. I studied under the direction of Dr. Richard Bell and Mr. Andres Gaskins. I have also studied and performed voice since 1993 under the direction of Dr. Martha Shaw, founder and director of the world renowned Spivey Hall Children's Choir.
I am married to a wonderful man and have two children who also attend Stark Elementary.
