She came to Minnesota to pursue a Bachelor of Music degree from St. Olaf College '16. She now works as an elementary school social worker, which informs much of how she works with and teaches children. She continues to combines her love for music and her expertise with children by maintaining a small studio on weeknights. Please reach out to inquire about lessons.
