Church music has always been part of her life.
After singing in church choirs and playing for Sunday School worship and youth events, her "professional" career as a church organist began at sixteen at a Methodist church in Monroe, N.Y.
While living in the Eastern Townships, she was organist-choir director at Calvary United Church in Sutton and at Beulah United Church in Ayer's Cliff.
After moving to Ottawa as Executive Secretary of the Ottawa Presbytery, she was organist at St. Paul's United Church in Carp for eight years, supplied at Stittsville UC, and joined the Barrhaven team in 2001.
She is pleased to be part of the very rich music life at Barrhaven United Church.
