"I was appointed as an instructor for the Juilliard School's Music Advancement Program after graduating from WSU, then graduate teaching instructor for University of Minnesota when pursuing my DMA degree, later as a lecturer at University of Minnesota and now as an assistant professor of piano at the University of Arizona. I still use the piano pedagogy materials I learned from WSU for class planning and course curriculum design."
