About Me

Thank you for checking out my web page! Professionally, I split my time as a professor of music education in the graduate program at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and as the Director of Fine and Performing Arts for the Framingham Public Schools district. As an academic, I research, write, present, and teach graduate courses on qualitative research methods in education and music education.

My research is focused upon White supremacy and gatekeeping in music education and employs critical race theory (CRT) and critical pedagogy theoretical frameworks.

I received my Ph.D. in Urban Educational Leadership and Policy at the University of Massachusetts Boston. Prior to my current positions, I was a non-profit music education administrator and public-school music teacher in New York City and Cambridge. I live in Framingham, Massachusetts with my two brilliant and creative children.
