The National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) about Marie in Bartered Bride:

An outstanding performance of the title character. A beautiful voice which was pitch perfect, and a considerable stage presence made this a charismatic and compelling character. Oh, how we felt for her, especially at the end when she was being teased by Jeník! Superb!

Rose Bowl Reviewer about Emmy in The Vampire:

Her youthful imagination came through with a lovely pure soprano tone as she expressed her fears about vampire legends. Her flirtatious and teasing nature making it all too easy for Ruthven to ensnare her and the quarrelsome interaction with poor George making her fate even more poignant. An interesting role with strong character traits was played and sung with a vibrant stage presence.
