In 1998 she became a Certified Teacher on the Faculty of the Royal Conservatory of Music, got her certifications as Suzuki teacher, has joined the College of Examiners and has become a sought after adjudicator at music festivals. As well she was a visiting artist at the Etobicoke School for the Arts, one of the designated art schools of the Toronto District School Board.
