I have been the organist at the Plymouth UCC for 25+ years. I grew up on a dairy farm near Mineral Point where my family raised Brown Swiss cattle. After graduation from high school, I attended the UW-Platteville and majored in Animal Science.After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree I was employed at the Mineral Point Veterinary Service. The love of animals and music has been an important part of my life. I grew up in a musical family. I started playing piano when I was 6 years old and continued to enjoy it. I also learned to play the French horn and was active in many musical groups while attending school. Sharing my love of music with the Plymouth UCC has been a joy.I am also available to play at weddings and funerals performed at the church.
