"invest in the art, not the part..."
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 teaching experience (University of the Arts, The Boston Conservatory at Berklee, Rider University), 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.
The Song-Heart Connection and Vocal Studio embraces the singer's personal and professional journey.
In 2020, I became a certified mental health technician through the National Association of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapists. This past winter, I began my second masters degree in counseling at Southwestern College/New Earth Institute to practice as a therapist with an emphasis on trauma, grief and renewal.
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
