About Me

I am an educator at my core and have taken this passion into the children's book and music field. My music is New Age Folk with violin, viola, cello, and vocals. I create a blend of old-world influences with positive, gender-inclusive messages for a new generation. I also create more ethereal songs for fertility and sound healing. My first book of the Gender Rainbow series, Can't Transitions To Can, was published in December 2021.

With viola performance and teacher certification degrees from The University of Washington, I have worked with thousands of students in the US, India, and Sweden for 20 years, creating community and empowering people with music. While I was living in the Seattle area, my orchestra programs were recognized as among the top in Washington state. 


After 4+ years of fertility challenges, I went through a major healing journey. I went on to meet my now-husband on the swing dance floor while on a trip to Sweden. And, I now live in Herräng with my husband and our child who was born when I was 43. My husband Mattias and I enjoy sharing our love of swing dancing and singing silly songs with our child.
