Ms. Weller has been teaching and part of Team O since graduating from Michigan State in January 2019. While at Michigan State, Ms. Weller actively pursued supplemental coursework in advanced conducting.

Ms. Weller has been invited to participate in conducting symposiums at Northwestern University, UCLA, University of Colorado-Boulder, University of Minnesota, University of Michigan, and Michigan State University. In addition, she has pursued graduate-level coursework in string pedagogy under the mentorship of Dr. Judy Palac and Professor Kevin Noe.

Since joining the Oxford Orchestras in 2019, the Oxford Orchestras have initiated a community outreach program, performing for various senior centers and events around the Oxford community. In 2019, the Oxford Orchestras began a collaboration with the BeeHive Homes of Oxford, where students volunteer to perform and engage with members of the facility on a weekly basis. 

Ms. Weller believes that her job is to help students find enjoyment, appreciation, and fulfillment from performing and listening to music. The Oxford Orchestras strive to find enjoyment and excellence for themselves along with their audience and the Oxford community.

Ms. Weller enjoys traveling, golfing, and spending time with her dog, Minnie! She is also enjoying doing wedding planning for her upcoming wedding in July 2021!
