I have 10 years of teaching experience with Decatur Public Schools and 14 years of experience as a private lessons teacher.  I have worked at Millikin University for 11 years teaching trumpet to students in the Central Illinois area. 
 
I was educated in Decatur Public Schools from Kindergarten to my graduation in 2001 from Eisenhower High School.  I recieved my Bachlor''s Degree in Music Education through Millikin University and my Master's Degree in Educational Administration from Eastern Illinois University.
 
As a music educator, I strive to help each student realize their full potential as a musician.  I also strive to encourage students to become more self-directed in their improvement and goal setting as musicians and all other areas of their life.
