She has a Percussion Performance Degree from Washburn University, has attended Musicians Institute in L.A., teaches privately, is a clinician, and has been involved in teaching summer percussion camps with middle schools/high schools around her home town area, along with teaching at Base Academy of Music, a non-profit music organization.
"Friendly competition has also been something KC has been involved in, by participating in Nelly's all female drumline auditions in 2007, Guitar Center's Drum Offs, and being in the top three of the Hit Like A Girl 2013 competition as the U.S. winner and second runner up.
"In the Summer of 2013, KC auditioned and made a spot on the snare line of the (NFL) Kansas City Chiefs RUMBLE Drumline, performing for several thousands of people before and during the big games! She has also become a new member of the "Sticks of Thunder" Production!
