She is  a teacher, Broadway performer, musician, choreographer, and songwriter.

With a background in classical singing from The Eastman School of Music (voice major/piano minor), and a BFA in musical theatre from The Boston Conservatory, She developed a solid vocal technique that supports her and her students through the many demands of the musical theatre repertoire and beyond. 

As a dancer, her specialty is tap, which is the perfect combination of rhythm, melody, and movement. Most of her training was with the late great Bob Audy, who opened her eyes and ears to the music of tap. His technique–along with her training from the Jazz Dance Legend Luigi— has become the foundation of her dance teaching. 

She has been teaching private voice, tap, and theatre dance lessons for several years with students of all ages ranging from absolute beginners to professionals on Broadway. She is currently on the faculty at The Professional Conservatory of Musical Theatre at The New York Film Academy as a tap and theatre dance teacher. She taught private voice lessons at the Music Theatre of Connecticut’s School of Performing Arts and The Broadway Arts Lab, vocal master classes at The Broadway Artists Intensive, and She created a voice class curriculum at LaGuardia Community College. She worked at the Trinity School in NYC as a choreographer, assistant director, vocal coach, and dance teacher helping Ivy League- bound high school students build confidence and discover their passion for the arts.
