From a young age I have had passion for music. I enjoyed singing in music class and church, and I have always wanted to share that passion with the world. My career path has taken an interesting path. When I went to college, the plan was to major in political science and go to law school. Three semesters into college, I took a legal research class and decided being a lawyer was not what I wanted to do. I finally landed on music business as my major. I sought to minor in marketing and mass communications to complement my major. During this time I immersed myself into the music business learning all I could and making as many connections as possible to ensure myself of a job. I was honing my guitar skills and becoming a better vocalist. I was able to secure an internship with DreamWorks Nashville in the marketing department. The lessons I learned were invaluable, but when my internship ended I was unable to secure employment in Nashville. I spent time working in retail management and selling cars, before I returned to school for a Master’s degree in Teaching. For the last 14 years, I have taught high school economics. In the past year, my personal life was turned upside down. A good friend encouraged me to get back into music, so I began taking guitar lessons again and singing. I had put my guitar down for the previous sixteen years, and a part of me was always missing. Leaving the music business and giving up on my dreams was one of my life’s greatest regrets. I have been meeting a number of very talented songwriters, singers, and musicians who have been encouraging and inspiring to me. Their perseverance in chasing their dream has pushed me to create this blog. My goal is to share their stories to promote them, but also to inspire my readers to never give up on their dreams. I hope that you will go with me as I embark on a new chapter of my life that helps me achieve a life that is truly fulfilling. My goal is to share amazing music and inspirational stories that will help make a difference in the lives of others.
