I grew up in Phoenix, AZ but after 10 years of Flagstaff residence, I consider myself a local in this wonderful mountain town. I received a minor in music when I first graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2016, but after a few years of teaching and performing, decided to return for my Bachelor's in Cello Performance and am currently entering into my final semester of the program. In addition to teaching, I arrange and record strings, have been a member of the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra for four years, and spent over 5 years performing with a local rock band, TOW'RS. Outside of all things cello, I love to stay active outside and travel with my husband Daniel.
It is my foremost belief as a teacher that your child is truly capable of anything they set their mind to. I teach with positive reinforcement while setting high standards for mutual respect to create a learning environment that nurtures their potential. I believe parent involvement is key to any student's success. I see teaching as more than teaching a child to learn the cello, but as an opportunity to accompany students on their journey towards embracing who they are, coming into their own confidence and creativity, and gifting the world with kindness and respect.
