I am originally from the Shoals area of northwestern Alabama. I’ve loved exploring all of the things voices can do ever since I can remember—both on stage and at home. I began vocal coaching in 2017 and joined the Trans Voice Lessons team in November 2020.
I’ve enjoyed helping people train both speech and song. That training has included music theatre and contemporary singing styles, voice acting, and vocal gender expression—especially for trans and non-binary folks. The thing I love most about this work is building genuine relationships with students and experiencing growth right alongside them. As an instructor, I help people to excel using practice methods developed with respect to principles from vocal learning, acoustics, anatomy & physiology, performance psychology, and more.
I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in Voice Pedagogy from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, focusing on the neural and psychological processes involved in vocal learning.

How Online Voice Lessons Work
Online voice lessons aren’t very different from in-person lessons!
I use Zoom to meet with students online. As long as you have a decent internet connection, camera, and microphone setup, the only significant difference is a slight delay! To counter that, we’ll use recordings instead of live accompaniment.
Fortunately, online lessons are can be easily recorded and watched again as a fantastic practice tool!
