    Born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
  2. If you weren’t a singer, what profession would you be in?

  3. The first opera I was ever in was…
    The Pirates of Penzance! My senior year of high school, our director decided to challenge us. I got to play Mabel.

    Cook: Anything with my husband!  Eat: Anything my Dad cooks .
  6. People would be surprised to know that…
    I met my husband in Italy even though I’m from Minnesota and he’s from Nebraska.
  7. If I could spend a ‘weekend in the country’ anywhere, real or fantasy, I would visit…
  8. I like to binge-watch…
    …too many things. The Great British Baking Show, Grey’s Anatomy, Outlander, any PBS Masterpiece Shows…
  9. What four people (living or deceased) would you like to invite for a dinner party?

  10. Everyone should see A Little Night Music because….
    It has a little bit of everything for everyone
  11. Bonus: One question you wish someone would ask you (and the answer).
    Q: Would you like all these cute potty- and command-trained puppies?
