Spreading the joy of performing arts and the accessibility of music education are both lifelong missions that I hold close to my heart. Growing up in Vancouver, Washington, I was always grateful for All Classical’s inspiring presence across the river. Today, as I pursue my bachelor’s degrees in Business Management and Administration at Oregon State University, I’ve had the privilege of minoring in Music Performance and sharing my love for piano and oboe through Wind Ensemble, Chamber Winds, and the Corvallis Symphony Orchestra. Musical volunteer opportunities through local hospitals and retirement centers have shown me that every composition has the power to bring strangers of all ages together. I’m honored that my music and business experiences thus far have culminated in an internship with All Classical Portland and the International Children’s Arts Network. Contributing to All Classical and learning more about the radio industry is so exciting, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
