Baton Rouge, Louisiana
I grew up in Columbus Grove, Ohio. My mother, a church organist and piano teacher saw to it that each of her six children learned to play the piano. Upon graduation from high school, I attended the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and graduated with a Bachelor of Music double degree in Music Education and Piano Performance. I recently retired from LSU after 30 years of performing and developing the Master’s Degree Program in Collaborative Piano.
I continue to be active as a musician maintaining a job as a church organist, and I am also an active seamstress. I also enjoy cooking and assisting my husband in his woodworking shop when he needs me. As an Ambassador, I love sharing my story and love of music.
