Mirella holds a Bachelor’s degree in Applied Horn and Music Education from the Eastman School of Music (2010), where she was awarded a Performer’s Certificate. In her limited spare time, Mirella enjoys cultivating her green thumb, indulging in video games and bad movies, and snuggling her two cats, Bilbo and Lily. She and her horn-playing husband (James Rester) love spending their summers in upstate New York and look forward to making the Adirondacks their eventual permanent home.
