    About the Director:
    I graduated from SUNY Fredonia in 2011 with two Bachelor's degrees in Music Education and Music Performance (Flute). I went back to SUNY Fredonia for my Master's in Flute Performance and won the Graduate Assistantship of Music Theory, teaching Aural Skills and Flute classes to undergrads. After I graduated in 2013, I was hired to teach Aural Skills 1 & 2 at Fredonia for a semester, filling in for a leave of absence. In 2014, I taught as a LTS at Niagara Wheatfield CSD, teaching 5th Grade Band and HS Band, and Lancaster CSD, teaching HS Concert Band and AP Music Theory. In 2015, I was hired as a full-time General Music and Chorus teacher for the Buffalo Public School system. In 2016, I was hired as the Orchestra teacher at Wellsville, and have been here since!
    I live in Holland, NY (yes, my commute is 75 minutes one direction!) with my husband Josh, my two daughters, Eliana and Mira, and my Border Collies, Luna and Moby. My passions (outside of music) are hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, and downhill skiing. Josh and I built our house ourselves and it's still a work in progress!
