She received her Doctorate of Musical Arts in 2017 from the University of California Santa Barbara. While in California, she freelanced as a cellist, playing with local orchestras, recording as a session cellist and touring with Latin pop icon Marco Antonio Solis and Gloria Trevi. She most recently toured with Celtic-Americana band Scythian, holding down the back-line as cellist and electric bass guitarist. Currently residing in Front Royal, Virginia, she teaches Music Theory and the History of Music at Christendom College, while establishing her house concert series "Painting with Music" as well as the Green Mantle Arts and Lecture Series.

Since then he has become a veteran on the US Celtic Festival circuit touring as a full time member of the Celtic/Americana band Scythian from 2015-2018.
