Prior to becoming a Music Therapist, Kenzi spent many hours volunteering at The George Center with groups such as Any Dream Will Do, Bucket Drumming, and Camp CreARTive. While studying Music Therapy, Kenzi led an adaptive rock band for adults with developmental disabilities. She also led a bucket drumming small group for boys with emotional/behavioral disorders. In Summer of 2016, she studied abroad in Jamaica to provide Music Therapy to children with hearing impairments. Through that experience, Kenzi became familiar with some sign language.
Kenzi has been playing piano since Kindergarten, which is what brought her to Music Therapy. While in elementary school, Kenzi went through Music Therapy and found her passion then. She hopes to support others using music the way it changed her life.
