Becky was raised in the Pacific Northwest and started at an early age playing the accordion, clarinet and piano. She was awarded 1st place in accordion competitions and was trained at the Portland Conservatory of Music in Oregon. She also enjoyed playing clarinet in the symphonic band while in college.
On the way to a music class, she saw students playing the harp and immediately enrolled the next semester and enjoyed recitals and composing hymn variations.
She earned her Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies & Education and also works as a paralegal.
Years later, she was inspired to use her harp to heal and help others.
She obtained her Certified Therapeutic Harp Practitioner (CTHP) degree from the International Harp Therapy Program.
Becky enjoyed serving on the Representative Council for the National Standard Board for Therapeutic Musicians (NSBTM) for 2015.
She has enjoyed playing for three major Boston area hospitals (Massachusetts General Hospital, Tufts Medical Center, and Jamaica Plain VA hospital) focusing on NICU, orthopedic, OB/GYN, radiology, dialysis clinics, Veteran's mental health and optometry, chemotherapy, and even yoga classes!
In 2017, she volunteered at Ft. Belvoir, VA hospital playing for the PTSD/addiction unit. She currently works for a music store learning more about the harp every day.
