In her own words:

“I have been involved in my community and surrounding areas since I began playing music. Whether I’m giving concerts on large stages across North America or performing for a senior’s home my purpose is to ensure the audience is engaged in the wonders of music making.

That’s why I believe the Nova Scotia Talent Trust is so crucial to Nova Scotia. Whether through words of encouragement or monetary scholarships their help allows studies and careers across the globe.

The Talent Trust scholarships have been the backbone of my career and I want to give back to the organization through my pop-up concerts and also rejuvenate community support for the arts as well as corporate support for charities like the Nova Scotia Talent Trust.”
