  • My Story

    At a young age, I longed to be a singer. I could not see myself doing anything else. I spent years perfecting and honing my craft. Over time, God began to open doors that allowed me to achieve my dream. For almost 20 years, the Lord provided me opportunities to share my gift with people around the world while singing with opera companies and symphony orchestras. About 15 years ago, my husband, a very accomplished professional singer, answered a call to serve in full time music ministry. The Lord had a plan to use us to impact His Kingdom through the gift of music through ministry. It was a big change for us, but one that we knew was God’s plan and will for our lives. Our years in ministry have been incredibly fulfilling, knowing that the Lord is using us as His instruments to share the good news of the gospel that will change hearts. Through our music ministry, I was introduced to North Greenville University and it is a privilege and a blessing to be serving on faculty at a university where Christ is key. I owe all I have to Him. I love pouring all that I have been blessed to experience in my career into my students, to help shape and cultivate their talent as they prepare to pursue music vocationally.
