Her music studies began at an early age with violin and cello in
her hometown, Middlebury, Vermont. She later took up formal piano
studies at the age of 12 and credits her classical chops to her rigorous
studies with concert pianist, Diana Fanning at Middlebury College.
After earning a Master's Degree in Spanish Literature in Madrid, Spain,
she moved to the Dominican Republic where she developed a taste for
music of the Caribbean. She has been Sabor’s pianist for over four
years, further expanding her studies with Burlington Jazz pianist, Tom
Cleary and perfecting her montunos with various Latin pianists,
including Merengue Dynamo, Kuki Carbuccia. One of the highpoints of her
experience with this style of music was a series of master classes with
Latin- Jazz virtuoso, Eddie Palmieri
