I am a violin maker and the mother of three in Milwaukee, WI.  My husband has been deployed to Iraq twice since 2006, but thankfully right now he's home.  We run a neighborhood violin store together called Korinthian Violins, and I also perform locally on viola with Festival City Symphony, and on mandola with The Milwaukee Mandolin Orchestra.

I was born in Detroit, graduated with a music degree from The Ohio State University, and moved to Wisconsin to study violin making.  I like rocks, writing, all desserts, nice tools, and I collect Rubik's Cubes.  (If you are ever in Milwaukee and need a cube solved, it takes me about a minute and a half.)
