As a native Arlingtonian and former Swanson student, I am thrilled to be a part of the Swanson staff! After receiving my Bachelor’s degree in Choral Music Education from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, I returned to Northern Virginia to teach at a Title I elementary school in Fairfax County. During this time, I also earned my Master of Music in Music Education at VCU. After five years in FCPS, I transferred to Arlington County so I could join the staff at Discovery Elementary where I worked closely with my colleagues to grow the new music program.
I live in Annandale with my husband, Jacob, who is also a music teacher. We love to travel and spend time with our families who live locally. We also enjoy singing with the Voce Chamber Singers in Vienna, VA. I look forward to sharing my passion for choral music with the Swanson community and working with some of my former teachers!
