Degrees and Certifications:
Music Education, B.S.
Recetly established Maryland resident, I moved from my hometown in New Jersey two years ago. My family still resides in Clark, NJ with our pet rabbit, Pepper. I participated in all things music- and sports-related in high school including Marching Band, Orchestra Pit, Concert Band, softball, and Varsity Volleyball. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education from York College of Pennsylvania and started my teaching career as a middle school Band Director in Pequannock Township, New Jersey. While in Pequannock, I instructed the 6 & 7th grade Concert Bands, led the 5th Grade Band at North Boulevard Elementary, instructed on the Pequannock Township High School Marching Band staff, and supervised the Pequannock Township High School Winter Guard program.
For the past three summers, I've dedicated my weekends to marching as a member of the Hawthorne Caballeros Drum & Bugle Corps and am about to complete my final season celebrating the 70th Year Anniversary of the corps. I will be attending DCA Finals in Rochester, NY once again this upcoming Labor Day weekend! I currently instruct Piano Musicianship, Music Appreciation, Music Theory, Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band and the Marching Band. I have joined the QACEA and MMEA organizations. I look forward to connecting with parents, students, and the community through performances and activities throughout the school year. This is going to be a great and exciting year for the program!
My other interests include travelling, being an diehard New York Jets fan, mastering more instruments, listening to show tunes, and reading. Feel free to contact me any time!
