After graduating, she began her study of the Suzuki Method, working with teacher trainers Patricia D’Ercole, Joe Kaminsky & Ed Sprunger on violin; William Preucil on viola; Carolyn Fraser, Rita Hauck, Joan Krzywicki & Cathy Hargrave on piano, as well as observing and learning from teachers all over the United States in workshops, institutes and in their private studios and schools. She has taught both in public and private schools and, except for a few sojourns in Russia and China, has maintained a private studio since moving to St. Louis in 1997. When not doing music, she enjoys gardening, biking, taking hikes with her family, doing yoga, and curling up with a good book with her cat.
