Everything worth doing takes effort. I’ve come into a time when I can apply my passion for being of service to others with my lifelong engagement in the arts. Between my teaching, performing and learning, I find moments of clarity, strength, and inspiration that carry me into the next adventure. I am grateful for all that I have been offered in life and love.
