She is also a professional opera singer and private lesson instructor. Holding degrees in Music Education from West Chester University of Pennsylvania and Vocal performance from the Longy School of Music of Bard College, she has been teaching and performing for over 10 years. She is very active as a choral singer, soloist, and recitalist throughout the Boston area, singing with the Cantata Singers, Nightingale Vocal Ensemble, Cambridge Chamber Ensemble, and producing her own recitals.

When she is not working, teaching, practicing, or attending rehearsals/performances, she loves to powerlift, play video games, and travel with her partner, Chris and their dog, Oliver.
