I have always loved music, but my songwriting/composing "career" is actually relatively new. I wrote my first piece--a tune without words--as a senior in High School--an assignment from my piano teacher. I composed a couple additional pieces, mostly as stress relief, during my college years, but it wasn't until 2003 as a Young Women's Leader that I wrote my first full song with words and music. Over the years since that time, I have written countless songs, attended Conferences and Workshops to improve my skills, and have rubbed shoulders with some amazing individuals who have helped me improve my craft. I am still learning and growing as an artist, but I love the journey and my life would not be the same without the gift of music.
