I received my Masters of Theology at Waterloo Lutheran Seminary in 2009 and currently am working on a Doctor of Ministry degree. My Vocal Performance degree was from Laurier in 1982.
Prior to working full-time at Waterloo Lutheran Seminary, I performed in the musical theatre industry; taught vocal pedagogy, musical skills and voice at Laurier and in the community; and led music and worship at conferences and retreats.
Currently, in addition to teaching, I coordinate worship at Keffer Chapel and undergraduate recruitment for the seminary.
The main focus of my research is the power of music as a bridge-builder between communities and cultures. As director of the Kanata Centre, I have created opportunities for public conversations and workshops about Christian worship practice, and I have coordinated ecumenical, interfaith and musical events that promote working towards the common good in the community. I also direct a community choir at Waterloo Lutheran Seminary called Inshallah, which sings primarily songs of faith from the global south.
