Education & Experience

2017- Present

Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS

I am currently in the process of finalizing my Bachelor of Chemical Engineer degree at Dalhousie University. My engineering degree had a strong focus on problem solving, design work, and some entrepreneurship. I am expected to commence my Masters of Applied Science at Dalhousie University in the spring of 2022. I left Long & McQuade in 2019 and started teaching privately. This allowed me to further develop the connection of music and mindfulness in my teaching.

In 2021, after nearly 10 years of teaching music, I decided to open Ekko Mindful Music Studio.

Halifax Regional Municipality, NS

Upon completion of my degree at Mount Allison University, I moved to the Halifax Regional Municipality where I continued to teach fiddle, violin, cello, and step dance with Long & McQuade.
