I have been a voice teacher since 1981 and a vocal performer for more than 40 years. I graduated from the University of Connecticut in Theatre and Music and have taken post-graduate courses in performance and teaching in Los Angeles, Seattle, and New York. My performance experience includes opera, musical theatre and popular music; working with theatre companies and symphony orchestras across the country, including locally at the 5th Avenue Musical Theatre. Ive been teaching in the Seattle area since 1990, including vocal classes at Lake Washington Technical College and was staff voice teacher at Strom Jewish Community Center on Mercer Island for 3 years. When living in Bellevue, I was on the approved teacher list at Bellevue College. For 11 years, I was a member of and arranger for the award-winning vocal trio ACappella-Go!, which performed in the Northwest and Europe. I have been an adjudicator for the Fifth Avenue Musical Theatre "Rising Stars" program, which recognizes outstanding high school performers. I'm a past member of the Seattle Opera chorus and performed the role of "Diva" with Teatro Zinzanni in Seattle. Recently relocated to Mount Vernon, I now offer my skills and years of experience to area voice students.
