You made it this far, so you deserve some fun facts!
I taught Zumba Fitness for five years as I was going through university
My favourite piece of music to sing is Eric Whitacre's Goodnight Moon
I love performing SO MUCH that I once did a show under an alias, because I wasn't permitted to do additional productions while in my opera performance class at Brandon University.
The craziest decision I ever made was to quit my day job and buy a house... on the same day! This wild decision allowed me to build the voice studio I had always dreamed of.
