Research Interests:

My research seeks to bridge the intersectional gap between vocal studies, musicology and critical theories around race, gender and sexuality in Western classical music-making. My passion projects and recital work delve into underrepresented composers like Stephen Mark Kohn's American Folk Song Set with multimedia historical photography, A Celebration of Barbara Strozzi, Women’s Own Stories, and The Seasons in 12 Languages.

Professional Experience:

In 2019, I completed the certificate in vocology from the National Center for Voice and Speech at the University of Utah. I currently serve on the faculty of the New England Music Camp and Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp. My previous collegiate teaching includes Hartwick College, The College of St. Rose, Bloomsburg University and others. Past singing includes ensemble work with Opera San Antonio, Austin Opera, Opera Delaware, Annapolis Opera, Boheme Opera NJ and the Still Breathing Ensemble. My publications can be found in the Journal of Singing, Journal of Voice and College Music Society Symposium.
