I am a choral director, singer and creative thinker. But most importantly, I am a mother of two beautiful children. Their talents and intellect surprise me daily and I thank my lucky stars that I have the honor of being their mother. I just graduated from Arizona State University with a doctorate in choral conducting (Spring 2013). I have taught/conducted singers from ages three to ninety-three and had the privilege of singing around the world. I’ve come to discover that I enjoy writing but since my last four years have consisted of primarily academic papers, I thought it would be interesting to test myself in different writing format: The Blog.
