pursuing her life-long dream of being a professional singer/songwriter and

unison as she finished her rendition of "Broken Wing" at her 7th

as she realized that all of those people were standing in applause for HER! She
realized she never wanted that feeling to end and drove her to pursue her
dreams no matter the obstacles life would bring.
Anyone who knows her would describe her as positive and passionate about both
music and life in general.

blessed to be doing what I love everyday and to be writing with some of the
best songwriters in Nashville".
