In August, 2005, after forty years of teaching choral music in Arkansas (14 years) and Texas (26 years in Plano), I was fortunate to join the staff of Performing Arts Consultants, the very company that had been my travel planner of choice when I was a high school choir director. Having been on both sides of the desk provides me with invaluable insight as I plan and research unique profound opportunities for directors and their dynamic young artists. I look forward each day to the many possibilities and adventures that I can help provide each client as we work together to create that perfect thrilling musical experience of a lifetime.
