LA Opera
Education Manager
Los Angeles
I have been Education Manager for LA Opera since 2015, and before that worked as a teaching artist with the company visiting schools throughout Los Angeles County. My background includes teaching music in schools, performing in regional theater and music directing in various community theatre playhouses. As Education Manager at LA Opera, I oversee K-12 student programming, teacher professional development, hiring and training teaching artists, engaging youth with opera, creating all materials for students and teachers with a focus on arts integration. (And I water the office plants).
