About Me

I am a professional jazz and commercial musician who likes to write. I am an imperfect single mom who is trying to make my way through my world, past and present, without damaging it or the people around me. The path to my own understanding encounters many roadblocks along the way, and I write to work around or through these walls and cliffs. Sometimes they are enormous, and at other times, they are barely noticeable. As a member of the United States Army, I have the unique distinction of being a “soldier musician” as well as a civilian musician.  The combination of the two certainly creates an interesting backdrop to my life, as I juggle a career and a family, just like everyone else.  I hope you will find something that resonates in your own life in what you read here.

    I remember bringing my daughter to see you play at Kenton’s Christmas. I wanted her to see a female out wailing the 6’2” dudes next to you. We were just talking about you tonight! We hope all is well.
