Welcome to the Homer Band Family! We are very excited to have you! I am a graduate of VanderCook College of Music in Chicago, IL with a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Music Education (B.M. Ed '07, M.M. Ed '12). I also spent many years performing with various drum and bugle corps on the Drum Corps International tours, most notably, the Madison Scouts. While not teaching the band classes at Homer, I serve as the Visual Director of the Lincoln-Way Marching Band and am still an active performer on vocals, trumpet, and guitar.
