I’m delighted to be joining the fabulous team at Radio Wey. It’s been an ambition of mine to work in Radio: and I’m now finally able to live my dream! So to my background – it’s an eclectic mix of classical music education, working for an international airline, raising a family, to singing with a contemporary a Cappella band. Way, way back, I studied violin, piano and singing at the Royal College of Music and then at Goldsmith’s College, London University. Putting my German language skills to work, I then worked as a Flight Attendant for United Airlines, where I became a Purser. Two decades later (!)…. an opportunity enabled me to take a separate tack, singing for a touring Opera Company. I now teach all my instruments, focusing on singing. I also sing in a contemporary A Cappella band called Academix! Most recently, I’ve been helping my church keep their live-streaming going during Lockdown and we continue to strive to adapt to the changing climate. My latest skill learned is being able to sing and play piano at the same time!!… Singing is what keeps me sane, but I love to chat too, as my friends will testify! I can’t wait to get to spend time with you, sharing my choice of music and lifting your spirits with some humour and banter. I promise that I will play your requests and spend time with you on the wards as and when we can.
