As a teenager, she expanded her responsibilities to the Youth and Young Adult Concert Choir as one of the musicians. As an adult, her responsibilities expanded more as one of the musicians for the Sanctuary Choir and the Mass Choir at Jerusalem M. B. Church.
As a child being reared in a minister’s and a musician’s home, she came in contact with many musicians and was constantly exposed to the field of music through her mother’s connections and efforts. She grew up in the Morgan’s Studio of Musicianship and later began teaching in the studio until high school graduation.
