She has sung a wide variety of leading roles with the Vienna State Opera, the Chicago Lyric Opera, the Paris Opera, the Houston Grand Opera, and with opera companies in Hamburg, Rome, Nice, Berlin, Brussels, and Cologne, among others.  Renowned for her Mozart and Strauss interpretations, Ms. Resick has appeared at the festivals of Salzburg, Edinburgh, Lucerne, and Schwetzingen, where she made a film of Cimarosa's Il Matrimonio Segreto.

She has been Soprano in Residence at chamber music festivals such as Marlboro, Fontana, and Strings in the Mountains. 

In her post as Professor of Voice at the University of Notre Dame Ms. Resick founded con tempo, a contemporary chamber music ensemble.  She holds a Bachelor of Music (magna cum laude) from The American University in Washington, D.C., and the Artist's Diploma from Peabody Conservatory.  Ms. Resick is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including a Howard Foundation Fellowship, a Lilly Foundation Teaching Fellowship, the Outstanding Development Prize of the State of North Rhine/Westphalia, and the Martha Baird Rockefeller Young Artist Fellowship.
