A relative newcomer to the Tri-Cities, Cathy is officially retired! She served as Director of Music Ministries at churches in Idaho and New York and taught piano for 35 years. Cathy spent eight years on the board of directors for the northwest region of the Handbell Guild, including a term as Area X Chair. Wherever we have lived, handbells have provided a way to feel "connected" in the community. Bells of the Desert offers a creative outlet as well as a chance to teach, learn and experience the diverse repertoire for this amazing instrument.
