Her career spans everything from new music (Lorelei Ensemble founding member) to opera (Boston Lyric Opera’s 2016 Carmen) to musical theatre (Ensemble in the 2016 Studio Cast Album of Hunchback of Notre Dame) to much, much Bach (Charlotte Bach Festival soloist, Oregon Bach Festival, Christmas Oratorio in Schwäbisch-Gmünd with Helmuth Rilling, Weimar Bach Academy).

She also is the Teaching Fellow for the Radcliffe Choral Society, teaches private voice, and directs the Holden Voice Program, where she works with Director of Choral Activities Andrew Clark on creating individual learning and performance opportunities that supplement and bolster the massed work of the Harvard Choruses.
