I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to be a part of the Parker staff for the past four years. The academic excellence and the emphasis on music appealed to me from my first introduction to Parker. Throughout my younger years, music was something I was actively involved in, so teaching at Parker truly seemed like the perfect fit for me! I grew up in the Chicago area and attended Elon University in North Carolina. Outside of school I enjoy traveling, trying new restaurants, and spending time with my friends and family. My favorite children’s book is Oh, the Places You Will Go by Dr. Seuss.
