P E R S O N A L  P R O F I L E :

My mission is to promote healing and expression

through music. With experience in music education and a

therapeutic approach to project-based learning, I want to help

people express themselves in a language that lives beyond

words. I have a compassionate, solution-focused mindset. This

helps me build professional relationships to achieve success in

my career. Let's create together!
