Music truly is the universal language and it is also my passion. I was exposed to the music industry at a very young age as I traveled on tour with my parents and the Benny Hester band as a child. My parents raised me to love and appreciate the beauty of music, as I still do today.

I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, where I was extremely active in the arts. I competed and won first place in Opera and Jazz four years in a row in the state of Nevada. I studied voice with some of the best in jazz and classical music and spent most of my time learning as much about music and musical theater that I possibly could through private lessons, Eldorado and the UNLV music department. I have been so blessed to have played such characters as Maria in The Sound of Music, Cookie in Rumors, The Sugar Plum Fairy in Shrek the Musical and most recently Sylvia in All Shook Up.

I have four beautiful and talented children ages one to thirteen. I also attend school full-time as a music major and sing with my church family at TFRC. I am the founder of the Twin Falls Idaho Autism Parent Support Group and the head of the board of the Autism Awareness Walk. I am so blessed and grateful to be a part of MVSPA!
