    About Your Presenter 
    Jamie Feinberg (she/her/hers) joined Island A Cappella as Musical Director in January 2022. She is a performing artist, educator, virtual assistant, and life coach, with a B.A. in music from Smith College and an M.S. in community economic development from Southern New Hampshire University. She spent the past five years travelling, teaching and performing across the U.S. with her husband, Ross Malcolm Boyd, while simultaneously developing online music education and virtual assistant businesses. She and her husband created several programs for seniors, including an intro to ukulele program and a theatre improvisation for older adults program. After spending the early part of her career as a professional musical director, arts educator, and performer, she started her own theatre company in New Hampshire in 2010, and in 2020 she completed a life coaching program to help sensitive, aspiring adventurers get the confidence & tools to bring their own dreams to life. In August of 2021, she and her husband realized another dream: returning to Charlottetown (after a honeymoon visit in 2014), where her husband is studying music at UPEI. You may also find Jamie on PEI stages as a Soprano singer in Luminos Ensemble, a Charlottetown-based professional choir of trained vocal soloists who are passionate about small ensemble performance.
