  • My studio is mainly comprised of singers that are pursuing higher education in classical genres, post-graduates that sing in opera/musical theater avocationally and professionally, and recreational singers that want to improve the quality of their speaking and singing voice. Applied voice students receive invitations to attend Master of Music programs at New England Conservatory, Peabody, University of Texas, University of Minnesota and University of Tennessee. I am an alum of the 2013 NATS Intern Program and am Assistant Professor of Voice and Director of opera studies at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC.
