  • Hello!

    I am so excited to be working at Hinsdale this year!

    A little about me, I am originally from the other side of New York, a very small town called LaGrangeville in the Mid-Hudson Valley. I started playing piano when I was four, and clarinet in fourth grade. I graduated from Arlington High School, and hold two degrees from SUNY Fredonia. Outside of Hinsdale, I perform with the Jamestown Community College Band, the Jamestown Municipal Band, and in pits for musical productions. I am also the music/visual instructor for the Falconer-Frewsburg Blue and Gold Vanguard Marching Band. When I am not partaking in music, you can find me scuba diving, or hanging with my 200lb Great Dane named Sarge.

    Fun fact: When choosing instruments, I wanted to play the flute. However, I did not know what the flute looked like, so I accidentally put clarinet as my first choice! Fifteen years, and two college degrees later, here we are!
