"MSU has more than prepared me for my career as a music educator. The foundation laid by the knowledgeable and caring professors has set my skills apart from others in my field. I am constantly reminded of my training on the campus of MSU through each time I interact with other music educators and find aspects of my training that are far superior to those of my counterparts, even now, almost ten years later. I am honored to call myself an MSU Eagle."
I am currently the Lower School Music Teacher at The Potomac School, a private K-12 school located on a 90-acre campus in McLean, VA, 3 miles outside of Washington, D.C. It has a long tradition of a strong music program, steeped in the Orff-Schulwerk tradition. I am proud to be in my 6th year of teaching there. I reside in nearby Falls Church, VA with my husband, John, also an MSU alumni, and our two young sons, Preston (4) and Robert (8 months).
