"When this Des Moines, Iowa, girl was waitressing and working at the local mall, she was winning national and internation awards from professional music organizations for Christian singer and songwriter!
"Years later she has won a lot more awards such as Song of the Year, Album of the Year, and more, while remaining an independent Christian Artist... with no record label, no professional management... just a singer writing songs, and traveling around the Midwest in her car, singing for churches. They fly her out to LA to present awards now to other songwriters, but she's still just a local Iowa girl trying to make a living... working day jobs, going to school, and trying to buy recording time."

"My songs are Contemporary Christian and light pop and speak to the heart about God's love for us all. I hope my songs will touch your heart. I love to write music for people who have lost a loved one or who are falling in love. These moments are captured so beautifully through song. This is my life and my love. I have always felt that I have been called to be a singer/songwriter. I hope you will be blessed by my music."
