I received my Bachelor of Music Education with Viola Performance Honors from Grand Valley State University. I started and currently run the orchestra program at Byron Center Christian School, spent one year at West Side Christian School as their orchestra director, and now I am grateful to be serving South Christian and Dutton Christian as well. Outside of sharing my love for music with my students, I perform with the Vintage Parlor Orchestra based in West Michigan, and I am actively involved in the community theatre scene as a stage manager and pit musician. I also enjoy walking in parks, drinking chai lattes, spending time with friends, and hanging out with my cat named Brian.
