Make a JOYFUL noise!
I am thrilled to start my third year at RFIS! Years one and two were full of building relationships, creating beautiful music, and jumping into remote learning. Whether were physically together or meeting through Zoom, we're musicians working together.
I am originally from Dallas, Texas, so your students will often hear "y'all" as they are making music. I moved to New Jersey to attend Westminster Choir College where I received my degree in Music Education in 2016. Voice and piano are my primary instruments, and I love singing in choirs! Apart from music, I am most happy when I am enjoying a meal at a new restaurant, reading a book in a coffee shop, or lifting heavy things in the gym. During the summer, you can almost always find me at the beach or being silly at summer camp.
My life motto is "Choose Joy", and I truly believe in the power of music to create joy-filled experiences in every child's life this school year and in the years to come!
