I am a passionate educator of children and advocate for the arts. I have taught children in private and group settings for over 20 years. I am a certified Suzuki Method Cello teacher and have held teaching studios in Toronto, Boston, London and Peterborough.

Trained as a cellist, I received my Bachelor of Music from the Cleveland Institute of Music and Artist Diploma from McGill University. I have freelanced with the Vancouver CBC Radio Orchestra and the Boston Lyric Opera.

I am the Executive Producer and Founder of Shoestring of Shoestring Opera, a charitable organization that performs opera for children and families in schools and theatres. Recognized widely for its innovative programming, the company has delighted over 30 000 children throughout Canada.

At Etobicoke Suzuki Music I am the Director of the cello program and the Coordinator of our Suzuki Early Childhood Education program, called Sprouts. It is my pleasure to be a faculty member of this fine program, both as a cello and Sprouts teacher.
