I am a seasoned piano pedagogue, accredited music therapist and pianist who has performed widely, both as a soloist and collaborative artist throughout Canada, the United States, Austria, Australia and Norway. I hold a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in piano performance and piano pedagogy from the University of Oklahoma, a Masters degree in Music Therapy degree from Wilfrid Laurier University and a Bachelor's degree in Piano Performance from the Eastman School of Music.
I am an active adjudicator and clinician and previously held academic positions at Oklahoma City University, Shorter University in Rome, Georgia and Western University in London, Ontario. I also teach at the Beckett School at Wilfrid Laurier University and regularly present workshops on performance psychology for musicians.
My primary setting for music psychotherapy practice and research is in a correctional facility context, exploring the application of pedagogical techniques and resources for music psychotherapy.
Current projects include developing a music psychotherapy practice at the Beckett School at Laurier, as well as a group music therapy program for adults with traumatic brain injuries.
