Short biography and a description of your interest(s) in music and health: 
I am the inaugural clinical director for the Center for Music Therapy at Berklee College of Music. I have extensive experience in healthcare and education as a board certified music therapist and advocacy in expanding music therapy services for diverse communities.
Mission: The Center for Music Therapy at Berklee is dedicated to providing innovative music therapy services targeting identified health disparities in the Greater Boston community. Our goal is to be a global leader of evidence-based music therapy telehealth and medical experiences designed to impact the overall physical, social, and emotional health of children, adolescents, and adults in our collective communities. This includes bringing music-based experiences to communities in ways that foster expression, support healing, strengthen connections, enhance capacity, and improve overall quality of life.
Collaboration Interests: 
I hope to collaborate with artists and healthcare providers to expand the field of music therapy and access of service to diverse communities.
