My goal in teaching your child to play the violin is to nurture a life-long passion for playing music. I began studying the violin at the age of 9 and have been performing in orchestras and small groups for the past 41 years.

I was actively involved in music throughout my college years. I continued my violin studies with Marcia Henry and Walter Olivares and was an active member of the Glacier Symphony Orchestra, the Missoula Symphony and the University of Montana student orchestra. For the past 28 years, I have been a first violinist with the Jefferson Symphony Orchestra (JSO). In addition, I have enjoyed playing in a contemporary Christian band for the past 12 years.

I am currently involved in the Suzuki Pedagogy Certificate program at the University of Denver Lamont School of Music. In addition to playing the violin, I am also a Certified Professional Photographer, serve on the JSO board of directors and am mom to two Suzuki-trained violinists.
