I started singing and playing (piano) at the age of 7, and when my mother came home from a garage sale with an electric guitar (no amp, during a very difficult farming period), I was thrown into learning to play to keep peace in my family! My writing started at age 12, and has continued in all the years since. Early influences were Neil Young, the Carpenters, Ann Murray, Jann Arden. Musical dreams and aspirations were put on hold in 1992 when my son was born and diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. My old friend music was kind enought to step aside while my creative energy focused on creating a full-inclusive life for him. In 2005, I finally had the opportunity to do a CD of 16 of the original songs I'd had tucked away. Since then have concentrated once again on my writing skills.
While putting the finishing touches on a second CD in early 2009, my son suddenly and unexpectedly passed away. "Just one Life" was released in September, 2009, dedicated to his memory, with album proceeds going towards supporting a Memorial Fund set up in his name.
My true passion is the writing, and knowing that so many of our stories share similarities, that allow the listener to relate to. Currently I am focusing on a series of House Concerts across Western Canada, as well as asn education project with Mark McGregor Leadership (see infusing my music into our trainings and seminars.
