BIO

This is my fifth year at Glen Lake Community Schools as the director of Vocal Music. I currently direct the high school vocal ensemble, North By Northwest, as well as Middle School Choir, Upper Elementary Choir, and Musical Theatre. I also teach Elementary General Music, direct the Musical, and direct the Glen Lake Summer Theatre Camp. I have also had the pleasure of directing the Glen Lake productions "Pal Joey", "The Little Mermaid", "Oliver!", "Aladdin", "Into The Woods", and "The Wizard Of Oz". Glen Lake vocal music ensembles perform at numerous concerts throughout the year, sing for various community organizations and service projects, and participate in Michigan Schools Vocal Music Association's Solo & Ensemble Festival as well as Choral Festival.

I am very passionate about choral music. As an educator in the Glen Lake Community Schools, I share this love for music with my students and seek to use this interest to inspire musical literacy, music appreciation and advanced choral performance. My goal is to use music as a tool for character development while focusing on creative expression, teamwork, work ethic, and internal motivation. Glen Lake has a wealth of talented students and I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together as a school and as a community!

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family. I also love hiking, camping, fishing, boating, skiing, and I continue to sing in local ensembles and solo whenever I am able.
