About Me: 

I perform as a jazz singer with a 19-piece band in the area of Seattle, WA, USA. Also, I am beginning a journey as a public speaker. I've been involved in music and vocal expression my whole life. A few years ago during thyroid surgery one of my vocal chords became paralyzed and I was unable to sing or speak above a raspy whisper. This lasted for about 2 years, and during that silent time I was reminded that the ability to speak and communicate ideas was very precious; also that singing from the heart was a blessing. Miraculously, things happened that now allow me to speak and sing. It is different than before but I am so very grateful. Now that I have this gift again I am determined to have courage and use my voice for good, for empowering myself and others.

My dear family was always supportive during my challenges. I have 6 children, and they have all grown and left home. They are wonderful people and I miss them. My husband is an employment counselor for the State of Washington. I am searching for employment to help with a recent financial setback. We have a loving and comical, 120lb Great Dane dog named Hera.
