I am very excited to be back at McKinley after a four year hiatus. I love working at McKinley because of the energetic and diverse students and staff. It is a place where innovation is part of the school culture. I have been an Elementary Music Specialist in the Petaluma City Schools District since 2006. Since 2009, I have been the Choral Director at Petaluma High School. I hold a BMus in Music Education from San Francisco State University, a Single Subject Credential in Music from Notre Dame de Namur University, and a MMus in Music Education from Boston University. I have also completed graduate studies in Music Education and Arts Administration at Indiana University, Bloomington. As of May 2013, I have a Certificate of Eligibility for an Administrative Credential from Sonoma State University. My particular professional interests include integrating the arts with the Common Core State Standards, visual and performing arts leadership, and vocal technique for young voices. I am proud to live in Petaluma with my husband, Jacob, and our son, Andrew. In my free time, I am an avid reader, foodie, and a developing photographer.
