I have two favorite childhood memories: singing in the evenings with my dad while he played the guitar, and falling asleep to the sound of my mom playing the piano.
When I was four, my mom started teaching me to play the piano. It wasn’t long before I fell in love. I looked forward to the day when I could play the songs my mother had played. As I grew older, I sang and accompanied in church and school choirs. I loved the synergy and passion generated by voices singing together. In 2004, I completed a degree in piano performance at BYU. After two solo recitals and thousands of hours in the practice room, I realized that my happiest times had been spent collaborating with other musicians and writing music for class assignments.
My college years were also a time of spiritual growth, as I struggled with anxiety. In Christ I found a source of hope and healing. Grateful, I decided to devote the rest of my life to Him and to helping others feel the same hope. One way I can do this is through music. In each composition, I strive to blend melody, harmony, rhythm, and text in ways that will enhance the message of the song and touch the hearts of those who hear.
I currently live in Utah with my husband and children. In addition to music I enjoy reading, gardening, hiking, sewing, and spending time with my family. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
