Helping to make people whole through the therapeutic effects of music is my pleasure, honor, and passion.

In 2003, I earned my Bachelor of Music Degree from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. I studied voice under Dr. Paul Richardson, presented two solo voice recitals, performed in studio recitals, OperaWorks, and the A Cappella Choir. My studies included music theory, vocal pedagogy, diction, languages, music history, and survey of vocal literature.

At Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida, I continued study under Dr. Jayne Standley, Dr. Clifford Madsen, and Dr. Alice-Ann Darrow. After completion of a six-month clinical internship in 2006, I earned the credential Board-Certified Music Therapist (MT–BC) from the Certification Board for Music Therapists and a Masters Degree in Music Therapy. I became a certified Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Music Therapist ( NICU–MT ) in 2010. I am a current member of both The American Music Therapy Association and the National Association of Teachers of Singing.
