She founded Clarinet Mentors in 2012 as a resource to provide online lessons and tutorials for the passionate amateur clarinetist. Her online courses have helped thousands of clarinetists play clarinet more easily and beautifully and her YouTube channel has provided free clarinet lessons to over 2 million viewers worldwide.
