Her mentors include Diane Wagstaff, Anna Presler, Judy Bossuot-Gallic, Cathryn Lee, and Mark Mutter (ECC). She was a member of the music honors society Pi Lambda Kappa, a teacher apprentice at CSUS String Project (2014), and a certified instructor of the Music Teachers Association of CA (2017-2019).

Mica developed a personal appreciation for chamber music, leading to participation in summer festivals and workshops such as the Vianden International Music Festival and CalCap Chamber Workshop. She has coached solo, sectional, and chamber rehearsals for youth ensembles such as SYS Chamber Music Workshop, Solano Youth Chamber Orchestra, and DaVinci Jr. High Orchestra. Her love for children led her to teach K-2 group violin classes utilizing the Suzuki methodology. She has been a member of various ensembles such as CSUS Symphony Orchestra, Camerata Capistrano Baroque Ensemble, Rancho Cordova Civic Light Orchestra, and Camerata California Chorus and Orchestra.

Mica loves working with children and passionately believes that the personal and shared experience of music can positively enrich human development. She strives to empower her students through music so they can understand the value of hard work and focus, which will equip them to independently utilize those skills anywhere in life.
