With the RPO since: 1992
My earliest musical memory is listening to my mom practice the pipe organ at church.
I knew I would make music my career when I was 12 years old and attended New England Music Camp.
What is your favorite part of being a member of the RPO? Playing our Philharmonics Series and working with world-class soloists.
When I'm not onstage, you might find me teaching, on the golf course, or spending time with my husband, Rob, and stepchildren Shawn, Jaclyn and Jonathan, the greatest blessings of my life.
I've always thought it might be fun to be a ballet dancer.
I love to dine at Rooney's.
What do you think is the Orchestra's most important role in our community? To expose the youth of our city and outlying areas to classical music.
