I started teaching in 2007. I received my Bachelor's in Music at Jacksonville State University where I am currently pursing my Master's in Music Education. I work with the Gadsden City School system's elementary strings program. I currently serve as the Principal Violist for the Gadsden Symphony Orchestra, JSU Civic Orchestra, and the Jesu, Joy String Quartet. I have also served as the Assistant Conductor and Orchestra Manager for the Etowah Youth Orchestras and string instructor for Lake Guntersville Music Academy. I have previously served Concertmaster for the Jacksonville State University Community Chamber Orchestra, and section violin with the Gadsden Symphony Orchestra, Red Mountain Chamber Orchestra and Rome Symphony Orchestras.
