Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I was born and raised in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I attended Lebanon Valley College in Annville, Pennsylvania, and studied abroad at the Umbra Institute in Perugia, Italy. I graduated from LVC with a BS in Music Education in 2015. My primary instrument is tenor saxophone. I am so excited to be teaching at Centennial Campus Magnet Middle School. This year will be my 7th year teaching and my 6th year with Wake County Public Schools. Over the past several years, I have taught music in several different settings. Teaching music is truly a passion for me. I believe every student deserves a music education in a trusting and supportive environment.
In addition to being a teacher, I swim for a Masters swim team in the city of Raleigh. My hobbies involve anything in the water, yoga, and travelling. I have a twin sister, who is also a music teacher, and I have two cats: Gus and Carson.
