I started taking piano lessons at the age of 7. I entered the University of Utah at 16. I graduated with a degree in Piano Performance.  I went on to study in New York and Europe including HochSchule Hannover and the Mozarteum in Salzburg ,Austria. I competed in many competitions and placed  either 1st,2nd or 3rd.

I concertized as a solo performer and a piano duo for many years and even made a recording I decided to settle down get married and have kids.  My passion for music continues in private teaching and I also am a State of Colorado certified teacher and work on the school system teaching music and drama.

Since coming to Denver in 1990 I have continued to perform. I have directed many musicals, my choirs have performed the National Anthem at DU and The Denver Nuggets for 4 years.  I have helped many students to enter the Denver School of the Arts.
