She serves as principal oboe of the Vox Ama Deus Orchestra, Grand Tour Orchestra in NYC; Texas Camerata and Orchestra of New Spain in Dallas, TX; Connecticut Early Music Festival Orchestra; Washington Bach Sinfonia in Wash, D.C. and she performs with numerous orchestras and ensembles from New York to L.A.

In Europe she has performed Bach in Leipzig and Berlin with Washington Bach Consort; Handel & Telemann at the Handelhaus and Telemann Zentrum with Publick Musick; Haydn at Esterhazy with Apollo Ensemble, and more.
As composer, she has been awarded grants from Meet the Composer and Puffin Foundation for her chamber and choral works, and her piece "Estuary" was used for the soundrack to the documentary film "Our Spirits Don't Speak English: Indian Boarding School". She directs Englewinds, a new music ensemble popular in NYC.
