I grew up the oldest of four kids in a Chicago suburb. My siblings and I did everything together growing up and my mom and dad gave us the greatest childhood anyone could ever ask for. They helped me develop my passion for music and at age six, I started playing the piano, something many specialists probably never believe I could do, since I could barely hold a pencil or use scissors in kindergarten. I went to an all-girls high school and had some of the best years of my life, kept playing the piano, and it helped me get into the best school ever: Illinois Wesleyan University where I majored in Elementary Ed and Piano. Now I'm teaching school, piano lessons, living the life with my family and I couldn't ask for anything more. Wouldn't be anywhere without the most cliché three fs: family, friends and faith.
