Bio

I grew up in a Southern Baptist church - First Baptist of Daytona Beach, FL - where I sang solos and in choirs since I was 4 years old. I was very involved in musical theater throughout high school, and then went to the University of Florida where I received a Bachelor of Music in Music Education degree. After getting married and graduating from UF, my husband and I moved to Fort Myers, FL where we quickly became involved in choir at our church, McGregor Baptist. I taught middle & high school choir and keyboarding classes at a public school until we had our first child in 2003, and have been blessed to stay home and teach private voice lessons from home since. I was asked to become the drama director and co-producer of the SWFL Christmas Pageant, a production our church puts on yearly, in 2007, and I loved serving in that capacity until we moved to North Carolina. I wrote the scripts for this event, as well as ran drama rehearsals and oversaw many aspects of this large-scale stage production.

I was blessed to be asked to write the script for our new church's Christmas production - An Indian Trail Christmas (at First Baptist Church of Indian Trail). I have also been given several opportunities to sing some of my original songs at FBCIT and continue to sing there often. Praise God!!

My most recent endeavor is a Christian script writing ministry called The Woven Word. (see my Facebook page - The Woven Word) God is already blessing this and I am so thankful to be used by Him to write in any capacity - scripts and songs!

As far as songwriting is concerned, I felt the clear calling of the Lord to start composing in March of 2006, and have been writing as much as I can since. Some of the solos you can hear on this site - the others have not been recorded yet. Some are choral or vocal ensemble songs. My influences are Avalon, Joy Williams, Casting Crowns, MercyMe... pretty much any mainstream Christian Contemporary sound. My inspiration comes directly from the Lord speaking to me through my life experiences and people who's lives and stories inspire me to write for or about them.

My hope is for these songs to minister to others. I would love to be able to record my songs in a studio with a full band and/or for current Christian artists to pick up my songs and use them in their recording projects. I am open to the Lord's leading!
