Virtuoso Advising for Artists was created out of a deep desire to marry my passion for personal finance and business development with my first love, music.

About Me

I started performing professionally as a singer at age 8 in Lancaster, PA. I loved singing (still do!) and I received my Bachelor’s degree in vocal performance. However, because I’ve always been a planner, I also majored in business and graduated with a dual degree from The Crane School of Music in Potsdam, NY.

My career progression continued as follows:

  • Arts management
  • Hedge fund executive administration
  • Executive Director of a professional per service orchestra
  • Music educator and choir director
  • Director of annual fund at a private college
  • Development Director for a NYS-wide non-profit
  • Financial Advisor- started own practice
  • Virtuoso Advising for Artists 

My path took me from music school, to Wall Street, to the nonprofit sector, to financial advising, business ownership, and now, back to the Arts. It’s been a fascinating exercise in self-discovery and personal growth. In fact, it makes for a great story to share over a glass of wine or even, bring me in to speak at your next event, but the takeaway is this:

We all end up where we’re supposed to be.

My journey, education, and experiences make me uniquely positioned to support artists and musicians in this way. As a licensed professional I’m able to share best practices and industry standards, but as a musician, I’m deeply passionate about YOUR work and I GET IT when the income is inconsistent and the work is exhausting.

I founded Virtuoso Advising for Artists to be a resource to the industry and support the talented musicians and artists in it.

My Mission is to serve the arts sector by helping talented professionals make more money doing what they love, and I’m starting with you.

So many artists spend hundreds of dollars each month coaching a few pieces, preparing for auditions, building websites and personal branding strategies, but don’t put the time and strategy into business development that supports and aligns all of the components that the career demands.

Our training focuses so much on the development of the talent and skills, that financial literacy and business planning takes a backseat to other curricular demands.

But hear this:

I do not want another talented artist to leave the career due to financial stress or the pressures of living on an inconsistent income. I’m so passionate about what I do and I am determined to help you in any way I can.

If you believe in this mission, please spread it. I want to help you, your colleagues, and millions of others like you who just want to create beautiful art and music in this world
and live a good quality of life while doing it.
