I am at First Presbyterian because my family felt so at home when we first attended over 10 years ago that we didn’t leave, even with the commute from Sisters. The caring spirit of this beautiful community is an amazing thing. When the opportunity presented itself to move into the role of a Music Director, I happily accepted. Being able to give back to a community that has given so much to me and my family is a blessing. I love being a part of Sunday worship!
Prior to taking on the job here at First Presbyterian, I volunteered as a vocalist for the Praise Team in addition to leading Children’s Choir. I currently also work in the Sisters School District as a Music Instructional Assistant and accompanist. I studied voice and trombone at Lewis and Clark College and taught choir in a Portland middle school before spending a number of years at home to raise three boys.
My favorite way to relax is to spend time at the coast. I find it majestic and powerful, yet calming. I always feel closer to God there. I really enjoy seafood, particularly oysters and crab- oh, and cheese! I also enjoy attending concerts with my husband Brian, cooking and tea time with friends.
