I graduated from Molloy College, in Rockville Centre, New York, in May 2015, where I earned my Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Music. I received my Masters in Library in Information Studies from the Graduate School of Library and Information Studies from the University of Rhode Island in May 2017. In my last semester of Grad school, I interned at Orwig Music Library at Brown University, with Dr. Laura Stokes, Performing Arts Librarian. My intent has been to combine both disciplines i.e. music and librarianship, in hopes to become a Music Librarian. I currently work at Bates College in the library, where I work full time, as a Library Assistant in Access Services in the Audio/Visual department primarily.

I was a Suzuki student for 10 years, and have been playing classical guitar for almost twenty years. In addition to working towards becoming a Music Librarian in the academic music library setting, I would also like to become a Suzuki guitar teacher with the hope of working with children and adults with special needs.

I have Mild Ataxic Cerebral Palsy as well as minor vision and learning disabilities. I have experienced first hand through the patience of my teachers and 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”. Before entering 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 as well as did an apprenticeship with Mychal Gendron in Rhode Island at the East Providence Music School in 2010 for Book 1. I took Book 2 training with MaryLou Roberts at the University of Hartford, Connecticut in 2012. I plan to train in additional books.
