After completing my MM degree at CUA, I was invited to perform in an advanced chamber music course in Germany, and subsequently spent several years in Europe, playing with orchestras in Germany and Italy, and performing recitals and chamber music concerts. Additionally, I have been a member of the Savannah, Charleston, and Green Bay symphonies, the Minnesota North Star Opera, and several Texas orchestras. Currently, I am a regular sub with the San Antonio Symphony.

As a teacher, I am experienced with all levels of students, from young beginners to advanced high school and adults. I began teaching in D.C. with the D.C. Youth Orchestra Program, teaching intermediate and advanced technique classes and coaching chamber music ensembles. In Minnesota, I was an Artist Instructor at St. Francis Music Center, and a Visiting Artist-Teacher at Staples Middle and High School. Additionally, I was an Adjunct Instructor at Bemidji State University, teaching applied violin and string method courses. In Wisconsin, I was an Artist Instructor at the Wausau Conservatory of Music, and for six years taught at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in Michigan. Currently, I am also an Adjunct Violin Instructor at St. Philip”s College.
