Growing up in the 1940's and 50's in San Francisco, she was greatly influenced by the music played in the nightclubs of the Fillmore Jazz Preservation District. Although her life-long career has been devoted to educating children in the San Francisco Unified School District, the Hilton Hotel Corp. provided her with the opportunity to develop her vocal talents. Friends such as the great Dizzy Gillespie, James Moody, Pinaist Mike Longo and Guitarist Rodney Jones along with her dear colleague, Shota, have inspired and encouraged her to keep singing.
