How did past ministry/professional experience lead to your position at Calvary: Throughout my great education, I have studied with amazing teachers, coaches, conductors, directors, and mentors. They taught me so much about voice techniques, languages, being a singer, an actor, and an artist. I also learned how to be a performer through lots of professional performance experiences. These prepared me to teach at Calvary University. My learning journey doesn’t stop here. Through my students, I keep learning and want to be a better teacher, artist, performer, and better person and daughter of God. I am very thankful God led me to Calvary.
Ministry/Professional involvement outside of Calvary: Adjunct professor at Rockhurst University (2005-2009); guest artist with Marjorie Lawrence Opera, Union Avenue Opera Theater of St. Louis, The Lyric Opera of Kansas City, Kansas Civic Orchestra, and Southern Illinois Symphony Orchestra.
