I served as Vice-President, Eastern Shore Band Directors’ Association in 2006 - 2008 and 2016-2020. I served as President of ESBDA in 2008 - 2011 & 2013 -2016. I was Lead Teacher, Performing Arts, Queen Anne's County Public Schools in 2005 - 2008. I was Guest Conductor for Charles County Middle School Honors Band in 2013 and St. Mary's County Middle School Honors Band in 2016. My goal for this school year is to continue to foster the relationships I build with my students.
My favorite book is New York by Edward Rutherford and my favorite movie is The Help. My hobbies include biking, kayaking, reading, and tennis. My best advice is “make progress not excuses” and “it should be quality that counts more than quantity.”
