PhD in Music Education
I am a second-year PhD student in Music Education. In addition to my life as a student, I have also been gifted the role of kindergarten teacher to my son, Frankie. My background is in teaching choral music to students grades 6-12. When I am not working towards my degree or teaching my kid, I am an active member of the UI Chamber Singers as well as the mezzo soloist at First Presbyterian Church in Champaign. I am currently working to encourage choral directors to rethink the gendered nature of the choral ensemble to create more inclusive spaces for our transgender and non-binary performers.
