I am a church musician currently living in Chicago, IL and serve as the Associate for Music Ministries at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Evanston, IL. In my career, I have served St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church, Long Beach, MS, St. Aiden’s Episcopal Church, Alpharetta, GA, St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church, McDonough, GA, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Peoria, IL, The Annunciation of Our Lady Episcopal Church, Gurnee, IL. When I am not working in the church, I spend my time teaching piano and voice lessons as well as honing my own musical skills. Currently, I play clarinet in the Lakeside Pride Symphonic Band as well as often substitute for the Lakeside Orchestra and Chicago Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra. I earned my Associate of the Arts in Music Education at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Perkinston, MS, studied Clarinet Performance at Delta State University, Cleveland, MS, earned a Bachelors of the Arts in Liberal Studies with a Minor in Women and Gender Studies at The University of Illinois Springfield, and I am currently completing a Masters of the Arts in Liberal and Integrative Studies with a focus in Women and Gender Studies at the University of Illinois Springfield.

Outside of music, I enjoy spending time with my fabulous boyfriend, Joe, as well as my black lab, Daylie-Lark. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen perfecting savory and dessert recipes and enjoy spending time in the outdoors hiking and camping.

Success! You're on the list.
