I'm interested in working with young women who want to take ownership of who they are through a process of self-evaluation, hard work, and honesty. Define your mission and brand, and maximize your potential, not only in the pageant world, but for the overall enhancement of your life. It is never my goal to fit you into a mold. Successful pageant contestants embrace their unique strengths and excel as the best possible version of themselves.

I have maintained a private vocal studio since 2001, specializing in training young singers ages 10 and up. I hold a bachelors degree in Vocal Performance from Youngstown State University's Dana School of Music, studied Italian and Opera extensively in Italy, and earned a Master of Science in Entertainment Business through Full Sail University, in Orlando, FL. I am also a certified teaching artist through the Metropolitan Opera Guild Education Department.
I combine my years of training, professional performance and competition experience with knowledge of the entertainment industry to deliver comprehensive training to young performers through out the greater New York City metro area, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. My goal is to engage students in fun, interactive lessons that build confidence, while fostering a love of music and performance.
