She has worked under the batons of many fine conductors including Gerard Schwarz, James DePreist, Sidney Harth, Dean Williamson, Richard Sparks, and Miguel Harth-Bedoya.

She has recorded many of Dan Locklair’s songs and vocal works, and in 2006 commissioned a song cycle from the composer titled Cummings’ Suite, settings of poetry by the beloved poet e.e. cummings. A recording of world premières by living composers titled The Shining Place was also released in 2006, as was a recording for Zimbel Records titled Songs of the Cotton Grass that features the music of composer Hilary Tann.
