I received my BA in Music from The University of St. Thomas and my MM from University of North Texas. The year between my course study I worked at The University of Texas Health and Science Center as a research coordinator in the Department of Vision and Optics. After my schooling, I performed music throughout the United States and Europe whilst teaching in my private studio. In 2013, I taught Chemistry and FIE at Texans Can! Academy in East Dallas where my students went from last place in the charter system to first place before the end of the school year. I began teaching at Dulles High School in the fall of 2014.
