Joellen became a Registered Nurse, spent 30+ years working in Womens Health, and now works as a Perinatal Clinician.
During those same years she has been blessed as mother to 5 children, as well as grandmother to 6 of their children. One evening in 2004 she was invited to karaoke with some friends. Little did she know that would set her on a path to rediscover a passion she had known decades before. Since that night she has been devoted to pursuing her passion for performance and singing. After the youngest of her children set off for college she began seeking ways to improve her abilities, and then found avenues for their expression. She joined a Blues Band, then a Classic Rock band, and then made a three year home for herself with an Oldies/Rock 'n' Roll/Doo Wop vocal trio.
She now performs as a solo artist, and as one half of two duo acts - Lady & The Tramp and 2 Hearts. She is thrilled to be included in the cast of the Senior Follies 2015
