About the Artist
I returned home to the Bay Area after receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Pitzer College, and a Master of Music in Vocal Arts from the University of Southern California. I have performed roles with West Bay Opera, Pocket Opera, Berkeley Opera, the Lamplighters, Golden Gate Opera and Opera San Jose. I have also performed with the San Francisco Opera Chorus, The Community Music Center Orchestra, and have managed, sung and am new owner of The Merrie Olde Christmas Carolers, the oldest and largest professional caroling organization in the country (

I am a former winner of the SF Concerto Orchestra Vocal Competition in both the Living Composers and Cabaret divisions, and the Grand Prize winner of the Art Song division.

I have thoroughly enjoyed positions on the faculty at Community The Music Center of San Francisco, NDNU, De Anza College and The Academy of Art College. I live an active lifestyle with my husband and 3 children, and to keep my sanity I play soccer at least once a week.
