Music has always been a part of my life and I am so excited to be teaching music to elementary and middle schoolers here at Hemingway!  In 4th grade I started learning the violin and still continue playing today.  Primarily I am a classically trained violinist.  I studied with Craig Purdy at BSU and Alexander Meshibovsky (a former student of Jascha Heifetz) in New York City.   I also love to fiddle and I started taking fiddling lessons when I was in 5th grade. 

I am originally from Idaho and am happy to be back home.  I feel like I grew up in the mountains.  My father is also a teacher and as a family we spent every summer either backpacking, camping, or sailing.  I would often find myself playing violin and making music with others at a campfire.  My husband and I recently lived in NYC for 12 years where I taught Pre-K and violin k-12 at Riverdale Country School.   We both loved NYC but we decided to move back to Idaho after the birth of our daughter Elisabeth in order to be near her grandparents.  Before I came to Ernest Hemingway I was teaching choir and musical theatre at Nyssa Middle and High schools.
