I grew up in Los Angeles, California and moved to Atlanta in 2002. I was raised with a very musical family and always enjoyed singing in church and being part of church choir and bands. In 2012, I graduated from Point University with a Bachelor of Science in Music Performance and Pedagogy. I enjoyed being part of the musical choir and performing in various musical genres. Since graduation, I've opened my own music studio and offer private piano, guitar, and voice lessons. I have always had a passion for teaching and working with children and making a positive difference in their lives. Since I started working at Gymboree, I've loved every minute of it and enjoy the smiles and laughter of all the little ones. In my free time, I enjoy singing, dancing, playing soccer, hiking, kayaking, and playing with my nieces and nephews.
