My love for music began when I was introduced to the piano at age four. I discovered the joy of teaching as a teenager working at summer music camps and teaching private lessons. I studied jazz piano performance at Towson University, and I remain an active performer in the Baltimore/Washington area. My connection with St. James Academy began in 2007, when I played in the pit orchestra for SJA’s first spring musical, The Wiz. As I returned for other productions and concerts, I quickly discovered what a special school this is. I could not turn down the wonderful opportunity to join the faculty in 2012, and I am delighted to be back for another year at SJA.
