"Mapex delivers something unlike any other brands in the industry. The durability, craftsmanship, quality and unique look really sets Mapex apart and I am proud to be a part of a brand I believe in and admire so much."

My parents tell me when I was three I would bang on pots and pans and I had the ability to keep a beat. My first gig was playing at a Christian summer camp for a week when I was nine. From that summer gig I knew I had an extreme passion for drumming.

In 2016 at the age of sixteen, I placed Second Runner Up in the international ‘Hit Like A Girl’ Drumming Contest. From that point, I began playing with artists and moved to Los Angeles to attend Musicians Institute. After graduating with my bachelors in 2022, I relocated to Nashville to pursue country music.

During this time, social media played a large part in creating opportunities and making a name for myself as a female drummer. I have been able to work with UMG Nashville to do social media campaigns for artists such as Josh Turner, Shania Twain, & Jon Pardi. I have continued to grow my social media following and I work with a multitude of artists and brands to promote new musical products and create videos showcasing the life (and sometimes funny errors) of being a musician, as well as covers and other drum related content.

My latest endeavor has been being on a competition reality show called Banded on AXS TV. This show hosted by Brandon Jenner showcases twenty-five musicians who were randomly split into five bands spanning multiple genres. My band, Starland, won the competition. It was an exhilarating experience, and I can't wait to see where things go from here.
