She is a graduate of Mansfield University in Music Education. She has directed choirs and has been the organist for local churches for 40 years. She has worked with Montessori schools and private Christian schools. She was the Educational Supervisor with the Head Start program for the past 16 years and has just recently retired. She is also member of the Wally Gingers Orchestra that plays original 1940’s arrangements for dancing and entertainment.
