Describe your role with Portland Opera

I've been a violinist with Portland Opera since 2014

What music/book/movie/show/poem/place/moment is currently inspiring you?

I'm loving the podcast Terrible, Thanks For Asking while on my daily walks. Also, anything by Brene Brown.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I always knew I wanted to be a violinist, but if that didn't work out I thought maybe I'd be a lawyer.

In my free time, you can usually find me...

I love swimming, especially in open water, spending time with my husband and our two kids, hiking, gardening and doing house projects that usually above my skill level.

What has your favorite quarantine activity been?

My daily walks, rain or shine.
