She had the honor of opening for nationally renowned comedian, Chonda Pierce, and was selected out of over 2000 applicants to perform at the Cooper River Bridge Run for three consecutive years. She has been performing for almost two decades: in her former rock band in Rochester, NY, and as a solo artist the past five years at a wide variety of venues around Charleston.
