Tori is originally from Martinsville, Indiana, and began her marching career on bass drum her junior year of high school before switching to cymbals for the winter season. After high school, she began marching independent by marching cymbals with Pioneer Indoor Percussion in 2012. She then went on to be one of the members in Legacy Indoor’s inaugural season and marched there for the next four years (2013-2016) on cymbals, until she aged out in 2016. She also spent four years (2011-2014) playing bass drum in the Pride of Mid-America Marching Band at Ball State University while marching cymbals in the WGI season. Tori has worked with several groups over the past several years, including Legacy Indoor Percussion, Veritas (317), the Richmond High School Winter Percussion Ensemble, Decatur Central High School Percussion Ensemble, Lawrence Township Winter Percussion all in Indiana, and Sandra Day O'Connor High School in San Antonio. Tori is excited to teach at Violet Crown now that she's a Texan!
