This is my 4th year in the Pendleton School District, in which I have been teaching strings grades 4-12.  Prior to teaching in Pendleton, I taught violin, voice, and piano in a private music conservatory in Bozeman, MT, and worked for a violin shop there.  I traveled and played both classical and bluegrass music throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana.

Hobbies/Interests: I play in several bands, primarily Blue Pass, The Callenders, and Imperial Twang.  I also enjoy attending music festivals, competing in fiddle contests, and playing classical music, both Chamber music and symphonic.  I have played with the Oregon East Symphony for 18 years, and am currently the principal violist.  I also love to read and to ski.
