I was born and raised in the small town of Trenton, Mo. I am the youngest of four children. My mother, Betty Wimer, is a retired school teacher, and my father, Bob Wimer is a retired barber. I got my first taste of music at a very early age when I was exposed to Andrew Llyod Webber’s “Jesus Christ Superstar”.
My involvement in music started in elementary school with the S.M. Rissler choir. Later, I picked up the saxophone and was included in the Trenton Golden Bulldogs Marching Band, but my main emphasis was in voice. I has been involved in all district / state choir in high school and received high marks at contest time. In college, I was involved in several major choral works that include, Brahms’s “Requiem”, Mozart’s “Requiem”, Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 9”, Ralph Vaughan William’s “A Sea Symphony”, and many others.
I attended Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, MO where I majored in music with an emphasis in vocal performance. My voice teachers has included, Clay Dawson, Jeff Nolte, Steph
