I adopted two of my granddaughters (Sierra and Zana) and enjoy our time together. My other grandchildren all live close (Theo, Jackson and Clare).
I work part-time as a musician at Christ Lutheran Church in Stoughton, WI leading handbell choirs, a children's choir, accompanying for the adult choir and pianist/organist for some worship services. I also enjoy a variety of other music opportunities (as a director of our community choir; accompanist for school music programs and as a beginning cellist).
Because of my involvement in our community, I was honored to be selected as 2015 Stoughton Courier Hub Citizen of the Year.
