Among her numerous accomplishments at WCM during her tenure include the recruitment and retention of outstanding faculty and staff, the Bach Room Concert Series held in the Back Room of the Spanish Ballroom of Glen Echo Park- which presents world-class musicians, including the WCM ensemble-in-residence the Pressenda Chamber Players, new classes, camps and projects. Hallmarks of her legacy include will be the creation of Tapestry Music Outreach Project, which provides musical opportunities for traditionally marginalized children and the spearheading the transition of the Washington Conservatory of Music to Glen Echo Park.
