I received my Bachelor of Music degree with honors from Lawrence University in Appleton in December of 2007. During my time at Lawrence, I enjoyed performing as a member of the Lawrence Symphony Orchestra, the Symphonic Band and the Wind Ensemble.
My teaching career began in 2008 at Holy Spirit School in Darboy, where I spent seven years as the Director of Bands. During these years, I led students in grades four through eight, offering performance experiences in the Concert Band, Marching Band and Jazz Ensemble settings.
Since 2015, I have served as the Director of Bands for St. Mary Catholic High School as well as the 7th and 8th Grade Concert Band Director for St. Mary Catholic Middle School. As we begin each new year, I greatly enjoy being a part of the SMCS family and am honored to lead this growing band program into the future.
When I am not teaching, I truly enjoy being active and spending time with my family. My husband Michael and I live in Appleton with our two dogs, Lily and Archer, and our three feline friends, Winston, George and Christopher. Together, we enjoy being outside, walking, running, cycling, swimming and gardening.
