I received my Master’s in Library and Information Studies degree from the Graduate School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Rhode Island, in May 2017. Two years prior to that, I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Music, with a concentration in Classical Guitar Performance, from Molloy College, in Rockville Centre, New York, in May 2015. During my last semester of graduate school, I had the pleasure of interning at Brown University’s Orwig Music Library, under the mentorship of Dr. Laura K. T. Stokes, the Performing Arts Librarian. My intent has been to combine both my extensive love and interests in music and librarianship, to become a music librarian at an academic library setting. I currently live in Lewiston, Maine with my boyfriend and his 3 young sons, and work at the George and Helen Ladd Library at Bates College, as a full-time Library Assistant in Access Services.

I have mild Ataxic Cerebral Palsy as well as minor vision and learning disabilities. I have experienced first hand via the patience of my guitar teachers and my parents, that the Suzuki method was the perfect path, allowing me to go at my own pace, and to truly believe that ” Every Child Can”. I was a Suzuki guitar student for ten years, and have been playing classical guitar for a little over twenty. Before enrolling in college, I completed Book 7 of the Suzuki Guitar Method. I am registered to teach Book 1 and Book 2 of the method. I took Every Child Can in summer 2010, in addition to pursuing an apprenticeship with Mychal Gendron in East Providence, Rhode Island at the Rhode Island Philharmonic Music School, in summer 2010, for Book 1. I took Book 2 training with MaryLou Roberts at the University of Hartford, during the Hart Suzuki Summer Institute, in Connecticut, in summer 2012.
