I graduated from Skyline in 1994 and from SBU in 1998 with a degree in Music Education. I then was a Graduate Assistant at Central Missouri State University, where I taught Class Piano and private piano lessons. In 2000 I earned a Masters Degree in Piano Performance. I began my career as an Elementary Music at Stoutland and then Lebanon. Next, I taught K-12 band and choir at Wheatland for several years. I have taught Pre-K-6th grade music at Skyline for 9 years. My husband and I have three boys: Zane, Zack, and Zavier.
