I have been an elementary music teacher for ten years for Clark County School District in Las Vegas, Nevada where I have taught pre-kindergarten through fifth grade children. Prior to working for Clark County School District, I was a private voice teacher for students ranging in age from twelve to eighteen, and I was a general music teacher for home schooled children.
I strive to provide my students with high engagement lessons that not only meet the national music standards and the Clark County School District standards, but I also work to integrate the theories of Carl Orff and Zoltan Kodaly. I focus on using folk music from around the world as well as composing pieces for my students.

I began my journey into music education before leaving public school, directing the bell choir at my church after being a member for five years. I received my Bachelor's of Music Education from Montana State University, and I have continued my education at Lesley University where I obtained my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction with emphasis on Arts Integration. I just completed a Master's in Elementary Education from the University of Las Vegas, Nevada in December 2013. I have also completed the first level of Orff certification from Southern Utah University.
