She believes that a balanced life is important, as it enriches the life of all artists. An avid traveler, a.k.a, The Wanderlust Queen, her singing career has taken her across the globe, inspiring her to trek throughout Europe with a recent visit to her motherland. She’s also traveled to Ireland, Greece, Turkey, Bali, Thailand, Japan, China, Africa, the Seychelles, the Caribbean, Mexico, Costa Rica, Peru, French Polynesia, Canada, and throughout most of the United States including Hawaii and Alaska. Her guiding philosophy “It’s not what happens to you in life. It’s how you deal with it. Well, at least most of the time.”
