I am a singer, actress, religious educator, and writer living in Boston.
In addition to teaching religion, I conduct a few liturgical choirs, run half-marathons, read books, practice yoga, and follow politics. In addition to singing opera, I perform in concerts and musical theater. You can read my professional bio elsewhere on this site.
