As an assistant professor in music specializing in classical and commercial voice performance, my work is ever-changing. A typical day for me can include teaching classes—like lyric diction for singing, vocal pedagogy, or opera workshop—in the morning, participating in faculty meetings at noon, giving classical voice lessons in the afternoon, and providing online sessions with singer-songwriters in the evenings. Because I love what I do, I rarely stop working. Even the weekends can fill with music-related activities such as performances and research activities.

Pros and Cons

I enjoy contributing to a positive learning environment where I can work alongside students and colleagues from various disciplines and backgrounds. I view my position as a vocation rather than a job. I could do this for the rest of my life and be fulfilled. Music is a gift, and I am thankful that I can share it with students and colleagues.
