Ana received a B.A. in Violin Performance and Music Education from Pacific University. She is currently teaching Beginning Strings for the Metropolitan Youth Symphony and serves as Instructor of Violin for the Community Music Center’s Portland and Rosewood locations.

One of her most memorable life experiences has been teaching individual and group classes for the Pacific University String Project, a community outreach program that seeks to bring the highest possible level of music education to low-income families. It was here that she discovered her great passion-teaching and also where she shared her love of music with students for three wonderful years.

More recently, Ana was lucky enough to present the major findings of her senior research project at both the Oregon Music Educators Association (OMEA) and American String Teacher Association (ASTA) conferences.
