Reviewers laud her as “vocally impressive and dramatically convincing,” while students describe her teaching as “creative,” “energetic,” and “inspiring.” Ms. Pierce is experienced in a wide variety of styles. Examples of her roles in operas include Olga in Eugene Onegin with Opera Carolina, Marthe in Faust with Lyric Opera Baltimore, Lola in Cavalleria Rusticana with Opera Tampa, Madelon and Bersi in Andrea Chenier with Nashville Opera, and the title role ofCarmen at the Southern Illinois Music Festival.

Ms. Pierce is a versatile educator, excelling as a private teacher, musical director and master class presenter.
