Where I'm from: I grew up all over the country as an Air Force brat! I loved my childhood! My parents made every move an adventure, and we got to see and experience so much culture through the years.
Family: I am the oldest (and only girl) of four children. I met and married the love of my life in college. He has the biggest heart of anyone I know and makes me laugh every day of my life. We have three children—2 boys with a girl sandwiched in the middle.
Interests: I love outdoor activities, music, baking, reading, blogging, traveling, crafting, and spending as much time as I can with my family! We love to make even the mundane an adventure!
I also love Singers Company. I fell in love with Singers Company when my own little girl joined years ago. She’s on the quieter side, and I have seen her confidence grow through being in this group. I was amazed when she stood up at that first performance and sang a solo with confidence. The pride on her face afterwards made my heart swell. As I’ve directed my group through the years, I have seen this happen to many girls: Girls who won’t even look me in the eye during the first couple of practices, stand in June and sing a solo in front of a crowd of 200 people and don’t even bat an eye at it. It’s pretty incredible to watch!!
We live in a world where girls are constantly being told they’re not good enough. They’re not skinny enough. They’re not pretty enough. They’re not talented enough. Our girls ARE beautiful. They ARE special. They ARE good enough. Just the way they are! Singers Company helps these girls develop confidence in their own beauty and in their own talents. As a Singers Company director, I hope to instill a confidence that will last a lifetime because they are amazing; and confident girls turn into confident women, who can make a huge difference in this world!
Schooling: I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education and taught school “officially” for 6 years. Part of that included organizing and directing my school's end of year music programs. I currently volunteer weekly in my children’s classrooms and teach children through my church group, as well as teaching these sweet girls in Singers Company. I also train teachers become better at what they already do. I just can’t get away from it; teaching is in my heart and soul!
I've been singing and dancing for as long as I can remember. My mom put me in my first ballet class at 3 and tells stories of me running around my backyard singing and dancing as a young child. I especially loved musical theater in high school and singing in various audition choirs at BYU during my college years. I now love singing and dancing with the girls in Singers Company and sharing my love of music with them!
