In addition to performing with the Charlotte Symphony, I perform regularly for chamber music at St. Peter's and in the Providence United Methodist Church chamber music series. I also play with the Laurel Trio and the Rhodora Wind Quintet.

Currently, I coach the woodwinds of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra Junior Youth Orchestra. I'm the founder and instructor for Sizzlin' Summer Flute Fest, an annual flute camp for young flutists in Georgia, with red-headed flute trio, Flutes on Fire.

I especially enjoy playing 20th- and 21st-century music with the Charlotte Symphony. Other interests include shopping (especially for shoes), cooking and eating vegetarian food, reading, yoga, and scary movies.
