I am an actively performing concert cellist who is also a historian. For History, I specialize in social history of Europe and the United States 1800-present but I enjoy helping students discover all types of history. For Music, I specialize in music theory (the science of music), and Orchestra preparation. I have performing credits in both the United States and Europe as a member of the European-American Musical Alliance (2010). I enjoy helping students discover their “sound” through music.

I am a proud graduate of Saint Maria Goretti Catholic High School for Girls, class of 2000 where I discovered my love for both History and Music.
