I am passionate about supporting you on your vocal discovery journey–finding more freedom in your true voice, and unfolding its uniqueness and natural power.


Singing should be a joyful and stress-relieving activity. For everybody. Yet maybe you’ve had obstacles that get in the way of singing with confidence, freedom and power.

Or, maybe you think you just can’t sing. Well, nothing can be farthest from the truth! Singing is a skill like any other. It CAN be learned. Yes, it’s true–and for anyone! The desire to express yourself through singing is your birthright.

Throughout my nearly 20 years as a college voice professor and professional singer, I’ve had my fair share of struggles involving my voice and my body. Initially, these obstacles were devastating for me but then they spurred on an inner determination to heal at any cost.

I’m grateful to say the results of my epic journey have been filled with learning, as well as empowering discoveries for myself, and especially my students who range from total beginners to advanced.

I know well how the voice functions when healthiest and free, and my wide base of experience includes many holistic approaches that empower YOU to know your voice in greater depth.  You will discover new and exciting aspects of your voice. This whole, organic learning process allows you to feel more joy in your singing and greater vocal freedom.

I’m all about…

Personal growth, going deep, and being lighthearted every chance I get!

And NOT at all about…

Competitiveness, unkindness, or being overly controlling or pushy

I believe…

You deserve to get the whole picture–voice, body, and mind–of what it takes to sing well and with ease. 

I’m here to show you the way.

My Commitment to You
  • You are “front and center” in my undivided attention.

  • Our work together is a partnership.

  • You–as a whole person–are an absolutely important part of the learning process.  You have a voice in how our work proceeds!

  • I always hold you and your voice in high positive regard.

  • You’ll never hear me judging, but only giving you supportive, constructive and professional feedback.

  • It is my honor to hear, guide and support you on your vocal journey.

Singing can be quite personal – and the learning, gradual.  Sometimes it takes lots of nurturing support before the voice comes out in its true colors.  I accompany you each step of the way with acceptance and know-how.


With kindness, know-how and creativity, I will support you as you explore and expand your vocal possibilities. You deserve to experience a freer voice and a more confident, positive you!
