Colleen is both a teacher and a student, as well as a musician. She is currently studying for her advanced teaching degree so she can continue her interest in touching the lives of children, but her real passion is music. Her motto is, there is "one life to live ... what will you do with it?" Her desire is to affect people, make them feel like they're not alone for 3 minutes and 52 seconds of their day. Help them feel the moment, the music, the lyric. She aspires to help people realize all of their beauty and feel courageous enough to show it to the world. That's what she plans to do with her life and her commitment to "The Cause" is one way she is reaching out to the world and committing to make change.
