This is my seventh year teaching at Eisenhower High School. I teach Orchestra, Symphonic Band, and Music Theory and direct the marching band, pep band, and pit orchestra at Eisenhower. I also teach 5th and 6th Grade Band at Muffley Elementary School and assist with Band at Stephen Decatur Middle School. In addition, I oversee the EHS Ukulele Club.
I am originally from Bloomington, Illinois and graduated from University High School. In 2012 I graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Instrumental Music Education. I completed my master's degree in Music Education at the University of Illinois in 2018. Outside of school, I play flute in the Decatur Municipal Band and Second Wind Flute Choir.
