While her emphasis is in piano, she has experience with traditional organ and harpsichord techniques as well. Her most recent positions include the ensemble pianist for the University of Missouri's New Music Ensemble (including performances at the Mizzou International Composer's Festival), keyboardist for the Columbia Civic Orchestra, and regular appearances as a freelance collaborative pianist and soloist for classical and new music performances at the University of Missouri.
