From the first moments she can remember, music brought comfort & joy unlike anything else - the appreciation she gained for many genres of music & artistic expression led her to study musical theatre & music at the University at Buffalo. After meeting George Caldwell during jazz ensemble auditions her first year, she found a deep appreciation for vocal jazz music & improvisation. She decided to study independently with some of the best jazz musicians, educators, & composers of the Buffalo region, while studying classical vocal performance with Ms. Tiffany DuMouchelle, all aiding the creation & control of her rich, soulful sound.
Since then, she remains open to the ways in which she can continue to share her love of music & storytelling with musicians & audiences alike of any & all backgrounds in the Buffalo region,
