My mother had me sing my first solo in church when I was three years old. That was the beginning of a long love and career in music. I grew up I Greenville, SC and completed my education at Wade Hampton High School, Furman University and Southern Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. My first husband was a Baptist preacher, and I served as Minister of Music in each church where he served as Pastor. I began taking piano lessons when I was six years old and voice lessons when I was fourteen years old. I taught piano students when I was in the tenths grade in High School and continue to teach piano and voice students today. I began as Minister of Music for Patterson Chapel United Methodist Church twenty-seven years ago and continue that position now. I joined Trinity United Methodist Church as the Minister of Music in 2003 and continue that position now. My first husband passed away and I am now married to Larry Coker. We continue to live in Greenville, SC and share a blended family consisting of seven wonderful boys and their families.

God has blessed me with a life filled with music and I am thankful to be allowed to serve Him through my churches.
