Originally from South Florida, my career began in New England with a studio teaching singers of all ages. Now with over ten years private and collegiate experience (University of the Arts, Boston Conservatory at Berklee, Rider University, University of New Mexico), I have discovered the fundamental connection between vocal expression and somatic healing. Using professional counseling techniques and Voice Lesson By Design, I offer a unique approach to singing that caters solely to the individuality of each singer.
Prior to The Song-Heart Connection, my "mini-lives" detailed work as an opera singer, Zumba instructor, nanny, server, barista and more. I absolutely love learning and enjoy hip-hop dance, photography, yoga, Zazen, hiking, fishing, travel, Italy and the Italian language, psychology and the shared human experience.
The Song-Heart Connection and Vocal Studio embraces the singer's personal and professional journey.
I am joyful to have extensive experience collaborating with:
*singers and dancers performing on Broadway and national tours
*contemporary recording artists
*actors in film and television
*voice over and audio book talent
*university and conservatory musical theater and voice majors
*performing arts middle and high school students
