She also has a long background in music, performing and teaching French Horn and Piano in Boise, Idaho and in Glens Falls at St. Mary’s/St. Alphonsus Regional Catholic School and at the Glens Falls Music Academy. She performed in the Boise Philharmonic from 1995 through 2010, and with the Utah Festival Opera from 2008-2010. She was adjunct faculty at Northwest Nazarene University and Albertson College of Idaho (now College of Idaho).
