Karine Dunning

Karine Dunning believes that running the front desk at Inspire is much like coordinating the busy rehearsal and performance schedules of her teenage musician children, however instead of managing two, she’s now working for well over 250 students! It’s a challenge she’s happy to undertake, since she is well aware of the many life-enhancing qualities music can bring to the students and those around them.

After studying music and art history in college, she ended up working for many years as a paralegal in corporate law firms and when the kids came a long, decided to be a full time mom. She has been involved in music her entire life - teaching piano during high school, attending countless symphonies and operas with her mother, who is a classical music critic, as well as introducing many different musical opportunities to her children, now accomplished instrumentalists.

Karine feels right at home at Inspire!
