I was born and raised in the small town of Fort Madison, Iowa. I earned my Bachelor of Music degree from Howard Payne University and a Master's of Music degree from Kent State University. Before moving to the Fort Worth area, I lived overseas in Singapore. I taught Pre-K through 12th-grade general music, middle school music theory and composition, and high school choir. I also lived in Maryland, where I taught 1st-8th grade general music and beginner and intermediate bands. My husband and I have called Fort Worth home since 2012, and our two children attended Covenant.
