I love performing because every new experience brings new friends and incredible memories. There are a few performances in my career thus far that have had a profound impact on my development as not only a musician, but a person as well.

Portraying Belinda was my first performance working with a professional company. It brought me into the world of opera and inspired in me an appreciation for classical music.
Singing with The Priests was an incredible opportunity! I had never sung in a professional concert before and I was very lucky to have been chosen to sing with them. They were very kind and performing with them was an experience I won't soon forget.
In my Senior Year of College I played Jo March in Little Women the Musical. It's a beautiful story and there are pieces of Jo's character that I still carry with me. She is a woman driven by the passion of her dreams and the love of her family. After portraying her I now know that in life we should settle for nothing less than astonishing.
Was one of the most challenging and defining moments of my life. On a day that I thought would be full of closure and relaxing moments, I had my appendix removed that morning at 2AM. With the help of my family, friends, an incredible surgeon, and tight bandages I was able to not only walk and receive my diploma, but sing the National Anthem, Astonishing, and the Alma Mater.
