Hope currently resides in Southern Oregon, where she is a choral director
at the middle school level. She has been in music education for 18 years
and has experienced teaching every grade level from kindergarten through
university. Her focus and love has always been with chorus, regardless
of the age of the singer.
Hope's degrees, a Baccalaureate and Master's in Music Education, are
from the University of Oregon. Her extensive choral background, both as
an educator and vocalist, fuels her desire to create choral arrangements.
When Hope isn't with her family or teaching she can be found exercising
or drinking coffee at one of the nearby Starbucks.
