Financial Aid Counselor
I am a former student of Manhattan School of Music and received my Masters in Voice Performance in 2016. I worked in the Financial Aid Office as a work study student during my time here, and I loved it so much that I joined the team after graduation. It is an honor to be helping MSM students with their Financial Aid questions -- don't hesitate to ask!
