She is a regular sub for Wicked on Broadway, performs with the Harrisburg Symphony and Lancaster Symphony, among others, and has worked as a professional consultant for the television series Mozart in the Jungle. She recorded flute and piccolo for the NBC television broadcast of A Very Wicked Halloween to celebrate the Broadway production’s 15th year anniversary.
