A Celebration of Voices
It is our passion as singers and educators to develop and guide the next generation of vocalists, and with that objective we are excited to introduce our new youth choir, Jubilate! (pronounced YOO-bih-LAH-tay), to the Metrowest area.

In addition to being a choral conductor, I’m also a lawyer, a web designer, a hat collector, and am completing my doctorate in Education at Northeastern University. I majored in Musicology and Voice at Boston University, studied for a number of years at the Vienna Conservatory in Austria, and received my Master’s in Choral Conducting from the New England Conservatory under Simon Carrington. I am the Minister of Music at First Congregational Church, Holliston.
My husband Rob and I are Medway natives with two beautiful children Charlie and Meredith. My weekdays are filled with my other 620 children teaching general music at the Holliston elementary schools. Outside of work, I like to read, practice yoga, sing soprano with Exsultet!, and snuggle with my cat. I enjoy meaningful conversations with friends/colleagues, making people smile, book discussions, and sleeping as much as possible.
I have just completed my 30th year of teaching public school music, the past 16 of them at the Edith C. Baker School in Brookline. I have taught Choruses from grades 3 through 8, General Music classes and guitar. I am a soprano whose Bachelor’s degree is from Hartwick College and Master’s degree is from Long Island University, C.W. Post campus. I enjoy spending my free time with my husband and 2 children, hiking, skiing, reading and doing Zentangle.
