Q. What got you into performing?
A. My uncle pulled me up on the stage when I was three years old to sing blue moon at his variety show. When he was finished, I flung my arms around him and gave him a big kiss on the cheek and the crowd went wild. I remember that moment and that feeling ... and that was when I knew I wanted to perform.
Q. How old were you when you started instruction?
A. I took my first dance class at age 8 and my first voice lesson at age 12.
Q. Favorite food? Most despised?
A. Steak, Cucumbers
Q. What was your biggest challenge to becoming a musician/artist?
A. My own work ethic. Things came very easily to me when I was the big fish in a little pond and then once I went to college in NYC I had to work a lot harder!!
Q. If you could live in any era what would it be and why?
A. I'm an 80's girl all the way, which is funny because it was when I was born, but I was too young to really "live" in that era.
Q. Biggest inspiration/role model growing up?
A. My uncle.
Q. If life for you were a movie, what would be the genre?
A. Romantic Comedy.
Q. What inspires you the most about teaching kids?
A. Watching them grow in their talents and gifts and then pass that on to others.
Q. What advice would you give to those interested in starting lessons or classes?
A. It's better to try and fail and learn, then to never know if you would have succeeded and soared.
Q. What is the most important/memorable advice you were given as a young student or aspiring artist?
A. Be persistent and know your strengths.
Q. What guidance would you give to parents of students?
A. Be their cheerleader and advocate, but remember that God places others in their life to give them things too. Work with them not against them.
