Adjunct Assistant Professor, School Of Music
- American Viola Society.
Role: Member at Large.
I continue my 3-year term serving on the American Viola Society Board. My committee assignments continue, and I have been tasked with greater responsibilities, including Chairperson of subcommittees. I have chaired the Nominations committee, continue service on the Newsletters and Publications committees, the Orchestral Excerpts Competition committee, the Health and Wellness committee, and others. I attended the American Viola Society Festival at Oberlin College in June of 2016, where I was able to attend recitals, lectures, presentations, and where I helped assist and proctor events.

- Utah Viola Society.
Role: Treasurer, Webmaster, and Jack of all Trades in service of the viola.
This year the Utah Viola Society successfully put on a Member's Only recital, implemented a new Orchestra Auditions Seminar, and had a very successful Viola Day with guest artist Patricia McCarty giving a masterclass and a Recital. As treasurer I'm in charge of making sure artists are paid, dues are brought in, and bank accounts are maintained. As a member at large I need to try to help grow our membership, and write many, many blog posts to help publicize our events.

- Utah Viola Society.
Role: Treasurer, Webmaster, PR, Media, Organizer, General, Editor, etc.
The board of Utah Viola Society has two elected members, so though my title is only "treasurer," my duties are far greater than simply holding the check book. Both the President and I organize and publicize our events, and moderate a group on Facebook. I started the website for UVS (utahviolasociety.org) and maintain a blog of all viola activities in the state of Utah. We both help drive membership to our organization, and maintain lists of the membership.
Our events have included several "Viola Days" where we present concerts by world renowned viola soloists, present masterclasses and other occasions for students to work with viola masters, organize opportunities for luthiers to show their instruments and for students to gain exposure to those instruments, we organize solo recitals, group recitals, and publicize events with which we are not involved directly but wish our membership to be informed. Our Viola Days have included presenting lecture recitals by University of Utah PHd candidates, professors at BYU, Weber State, Utah State, and the Utah Symphony. One of our missions for the Utah Viola Society is to be the “connective tissue” between all the violists in the state, from the amateur violist, to the studio teacher, to the University Professors and their students, to the full-time symphony member.
