The Journey


I grew up in rural Oregon, where music, nature and a natural inclination toward spirituality marked my earliest years.  I always have, and always will, consider my life a spiritual journey.  My music reflects my deep-seeded need to reconnect with my inner divine nature.

My grandmother was a piano teacher and started me on music at a very young age. Singing was my true passion.  In my pre-teens I became interested in the guitar, which I began to play and then to use as a vehicle for songwriting and performing. 

My deep spiritual nature and the blessing of the discovery of my beloved spiritual teacher when I was a teenager have seen me through the many ups and downs of my life.  My experience as the mother of a son with autism has deepend my faith and compassion.   Throughout my life, I have continued to write music and perform in a variety of bands.  I have played and performed nearly every style of music at one time or another.   At present, I play piano and keyboard, sing and write songs. 

I have a bachelors degree in music as well as Master's and Doctoral degrees in eduational leadership with an emphasis on the importance of music to stimulate the imagination.  My primary concern is the injustice created by taking music and the other arts out of public schools and making them a privilege experienced only by those who are financially fortunate and the effect this has of stiffling the imagination and spiritual growth.  As a part of my dissertation I wrote songs but I also wrote children’s stories, autobiographic narratives and poetry.

I am now self employed as a singer/songwriter, performer and teacher.  I have one recorded album, This Dream, which can be purchases through CD Baby. I currently live with my husband (also my number one fan!) and our three pets. We share a common love of the spiritual life, meditation, nature and music.
