Growing up I always enjoyed music and playing the piano. I began seriously taking lessons at age nine, and continued to to develop my skill through high school and college. In college, I study with Dr. Sharon Jensen formerly piano and music faculty at Emmaus Bible College and current piano faculty at Clarke University in Dubuque, Ia. During this time, I had the opportunity to take a piano pedagogy course and through it gained five students and a love of teaching. I continued my education at Mount Mercy University in Cedar Rapids, IA where I studied with Tony Nickle. I received my BA in Music in 2015 and graduated "with high honors". I am a current member of the Iowa Music Teachers Association.
As a member of the Florida Music Teachers Association, I have had the opportunity to attend several professional conferences and learn and stay current on the newest teaching trends.
