A former winner in the national "Flute Talk" Magazine Competition, the UArts Concerto Competition, the New York Flute Club Competition and the Mid-South Young Artist Flute Competition, Dr. Snizek performed with the ESO (National Orchestra of Taiwan) and was an active freelance orchestral and chamber musician in the Philadelphia region before receiving her DMA at UBC (Vancouver) in 2011. Her teachers include Maralyn Prestia-Schaub, Carol Wincenc, Peter Lloyd, Julius Baker, David Cramer and Lorna McGhee. Currently an Associate Professor at the University of Victoria, Dr. Snizek joined the UVic faculty as a visiting assistant professor in 2011. "Chamber Music (Re)Discoveries," garnered Dr. Snizek the 2017 REACH award for "Excellence in Creative Expression" from the University of Victoria.
