After graduating from Newton South in 1995, she attended Spelman College as a Presidential Scholar, majoring in Classical Piano Performance and minoring in French. She earned a certificate to teach classical piano at L’École Normale de Musique, a private conservatory in Paris, France in 1998. She graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. She then graduated from Western New England University School of Law. After practicing law for over ten years in the private and public sectors, she was appointed as a Commissioner to the Boston Licensing Board, where she still serves.

 

In addition to teaching beginner and intermediate Classical piano to 17 students weekly, she serves on non-profit boards of youth organizations. She lives in Jamaica Plain with her husband and their 7 year-old daughter.
