I really want to take the time out to thank all of my Berklee teachers that have pushed me to be my best self. I want to thank Tom Baskett, Ana Guigui, Rebecca Perricone, and Rene Pfister for believing and supporting in all I do. I also want to thank my high-school teachers Jake Meiss and Twyla Edwards for challenging me and my abilities as a singer and actress and for showing me professionalism and grace. I also have to thank my former piano teacher-Nina Merrill, for giving me such theory knowledge that has put me ahead of the game in my career. I also want to thank my mom and dad for sharing their love of music with me and for teaching me all they know and guiding me into life of music. Their teachings have enabled me to go out, audition, and perform in projects that I never thought I’d be able to! I am privileged to have such a wonderful support system- so thank you!!
