I have been directing the Asbury Chancel Choir for 21 years. My husband Lee and I moved to Portland in 1977 and became members of Asbury and the choir. I grew up in the Friends Church (Quaker) in Newport, Indiana. My music degree was earned at Indiana State University in Terre Haute, Indiana. I was the high school band and choir director for six years at North Vermillion High School.

I retired from teaching music and beginning band in the Jay School Corporation in 2011.

I feel that the choir is a vital part of our church service each week and we try to touch someone in the congregation with our music or message. The choir is small now but they are a dedicated group that does a very nice job. Our daughter Rebecca is now a member of the choir as well.
