Biography:  

"I fell in love with the harp in 1993 after seeing a performance at a Ren Faire. I began taking lessons and was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I could pick up various tunes by ear. It definitely helped that I had 9 years of piano lessons under my belt. In 1998, a friend encouraged me to play for an elegant coffee & dessert café, which lead to wedding gigs and dinner parties. I attended the Somerset Folk Harp festival and was blown away by the number of workshops and the rock stars of the harp community. I learned that there are no limitations, you can play just about anything on the harp, and I began to add jazz, pop and show tunes to my repertoire."
