This is my seventh year to work with Edmond Public Schools but my twelfth year teaching. In addition to directing the Cheyenne orchestras, I also direct the Edmond Festival Strings Orchestra which is part of the Oklahoma Youth Orchestras. I am a graduate of Oklahoma City University where I earned my bachelors degree in music education. I have worked with OKCPS at Classen SAS prior to graduating and began string programs at Nichols Hills and Sequoyah Elementary after graduation. I then moved to Dallas, Texas where I was the orchestra director at Barbara Bush M.S. in CFBISD for four years. My husband, Nick, and I reside in Oklahoma City with our children, Andrew and Eleanor.
