I have been playing with the Boise Philharmonic since my junior year of college. It has been a wonderful part of my life. As a music teacher in the public school system, I frequently draw from my experiences playing beautiful music with this amazing group of people for new information to bring to the students.

What other instruments do you play? In college, I also majored in singing. As a music teacher, I am able to get around on most of the instruments beginners play in band and orchestra, as well as a little piano.

What is your favorite composer/genre? I always tell people that my favorite is whatever I am working on in that moment!

Tell us a little about yourself (hobbies, interests, etc.): With three children who are very busy themselves and a full time teaching job, I don't have a lot of time for hobbies, but when the opportunity arises, I enjoy reading and doing cross stitch.
