Over the last 14 years I have had the pleasure of working with singers from all levels and all styles. I am super passionate about helping singers to achieve their vocal goals by giving them the best training possible! As a mix-voice technique expert and a voice wellness wellness advocate, I believe that singers have to really take care of their instrument and understand how to use it effectively, so that they can have longevity and enjoyment in their singing endeavours.
A little bit about me, I am a graduate of the University of British Columbia’s School of Music. In 2017, I received my Level 5 (the highest level) Mentor Instructor Certificate with the Institute for Vocal Advancement, an international vocal education organization. I was also certified in Speech Level Singing technique and studied singing in the SLS technique for over 10 years. I am also a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS).
As a singer and musician myself I have an extensive background in the performing arts including being a performing singer/songwriter, recording artist and musical theatre performer as well experience on set as as film/tv actor.
I have worked with and consulted with some of the world’s top groundbreaking voice instructors including Seth Riggs (Stevie Wonder, Madonna), Wendy Parr (Sarah Bareilles, Great Big World), Rob Raab Stevenson (Kelly Clarkson, Justin Timberlake), Mindy Pack (Brandi Carlile, The Lumineers), Greg Enriquez, Dean Kaelin, Diane Loeb, Kathy Kennedy, Guy Babusek, Stephanie Borm-Krueger, Linda Tomkinson. and my long time mentor, Spencer Welch. I am consistent with studying voice to this day, and to taking professional development courses in the ever-evolving voice world. I continue to work very closely and consult with vocal health professionals and experts in my field, as I work with singers who have had vocal injury and are cleared to sing again.
