I hold an Honours Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Music and Drama from the University of Waterloo, as well as a Bachelor of Education (BEd) from the University of Toronto.
I am active as a singer, performer, voice instructor and music educator in Kitchener-Waterloo (and beyond).
I am classically-trained and primarily work as a jazz vocalist. I have headlined shows at the Jazz Room, the Uptown Waterloo Jazz Festival and the Registry Theatre. I have also been a soloist with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony.
I am the founder and artistic director of Jazz in the Schools, a program dedicated to unleashing creative expression in high school students, and Jazz for Adults, an initiative geared to adults 60+ who are looking for a safe, enjoyable outlet to sing and play.
My debut album You’re Gonna Hear From Me has received rave reviews in Wholenote Magazine and from jazz journalist Scott Yanow. Concerts for the album were performed at Jazz Bistro and The Rex in Toronto, to name a few.
I love being a voice teacher. I believe that music education is just as much about the discovery of oneself as it is about the discovery of music. I encourage students of all ages to explore singing as an extension of themselves – to take risks, to embrace the challenges and to sing with vulnerability, honesty and heart.
