She hopes to work in developing affordable sustainable technology while continuing to enjoy her violin and choral groups.

"Treble Choir allowed me to see more of the world and hear more music. Craig Hella Johnson's "Will There Really Be a Morning" and Britten's "Balulalow" are still some of my favorite pieces of music to hear and sing!"

"Singing in Treble Choir has been important for me because I was able to be apart of a wonderful group of an inspirational sisterhood of singing. I felt very empowered as a young woman because of the strong young woman  that sang with me and the mentorship elements of the group. We are much more than a choir; we are family."
