I am a mother, grandmother, pharmacist and pharmacy manager. I live on a hobby farm with an assortment of critters and love world travel. At 63 years old, I was nudged by a friend to enter the Ms. Minnesota Sr. Pageant. Not knowing what my talent was, I chose to sing and the experience left me changed forever. My heart and emotions were so touched by this musical experience that I began voice training with Mary Laymon. Over the last 12 years, I have studied guitar, piano, voice and performance with the Guthrie and MacPhail Music Center. To my delight, this led to my fun “play” with community theaters, the award-winning documentary film, Pretty Old, and best of all the invitation to join Alive & Kickin!
