One-Line Bio

I'm not a character mezzo ... I'm a mezzo with character!


I am a professional opera singer, writer, teacher, and consultant.

When I'm not off somewhere singing, I live in Texas with my husband Eric and our two opera-hating Dachshunds, Samson and Dalila.

Mezzo with Character is my current blog, encompassing any topics I find interesting along with scenes from my life, on and off the stage. My previous blog, The Next 100 Pounds, is archived and remains available for anyone interested in reading it.
