She was actively involved in many honor ensembles and productions at Beatrice High School. She earned her bachelor of music degree in voice from Coe College in 1996 and her master of music degree in voice from University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2000. She has been a full time private music teacher for over 20 years in voice, piano, saxophone and beginning guitar. As a teaching artist her professional career has taken her all over the United States, Europe and the West Indies.

In high school, she performed in choir, marching, concert and jazz bands and the Nebraska All-State Chorus. She was also an active member of the Beatrice HS Speech and Drama department. She continued choral and instrumental music in college performing in the Coe College concert band, jazz band and concert choirs where she was a regularly featured soloist. In 1996, she lived in New York City where she worked as an intern with the Education Department of the Metropolitan Opera Guild and studied music, theatre, dance and art. She graduated with her bachelor of music degree in vocal performance with performer's certificate from Coe College in 1996. She was accepted into the San Francisco Conservatory of Music in 1997.
