started singing with bands while attending Hendrix College, then
moved to basement bands in Washington D.C. before getting her
big break as the lead singer for a blues band called The Spoilers.
They had the dubious distinction of being the house band at the
Laughing Lizard Lounge in Old Town. Then she ran off to join
the Peace Corps in the wilds of Dominica, West Indies, where
as a P.C. volunteer, she was expressly forbidden to sing!
that ny job that didn't allow singing was no job for her, so
she came back her homeland in Fayetteville. She climbed the corporate
ladder & started Ultra Suede with Rhonda & Susie for
fun in her spare time. As it took on a life of its own, she traded
in her 3-piece suits for khakis & settled into a great job
as Membership Director at KUAF, National Public Radio.
She now enjoys
both full-time jobs with her husband, Charlie & their dogs,
Missy & Eva (the Diva).
