I am an educator and freelance harpist in San Francisco. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from
Rice University in Houston, Texas, with a Bachelor of Music. Then, I went on to complete my
Master of Music at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. For the past two years, I have taught
elementary music in the Napa and San Mateo public schools, as well as private music lessons.
This teaching experience has helped me to build my skills of patience, empathy, and
communication.

While music is one of my primary areas of focus, I also have expertise in foreign language and
literature. My mother is from Germany, and I grew up learning the language. I then furthered my
study of German in high school and college, where I took several advanced courses, including a
class on modern era German literature. Additionally, I have volunteered as an ESL tutor through a mentoring program for refugee youth in Houston.

Beyond that, I have a thorough understanding of the Advanced Placement system, as I
completed several AP classes in high school. I took and received the top score of a five in each
of the following AP classes: English Literature, English Language and Composition, U.S. History,
and U.S. Government.
