Music has been an integral and exciting part of my life since childhood. I have sung in church choirs since the third grade and in school choirs from elementary through university. I auditioned and was selected to be a part of a small children's chorus for a professional musical recording in Hollywood. I have sung numerous solos in church services, weddings, funerals, community events, recitals, county fairs, master classes, and concerts. I have directed children’s choirs, youth choirs, adult choirs, community choirs and served as a choral section leader at the university level.
While growing up in Southern California, I studied piano with the late Mrs. Betty Stockwell and hold a Bachelor of Arts degree (1989) from Cal State University, Chico, in Vocal Performance, with an emphasis on Choral Conducting.
I am currently actively involved in the music ministry of my church as a vocalist.
I have been teaching lessons since 1989 in Wyoming and California.
