About

Rebecca was born the eldest of two daughters in San Jose, California. With her mother being an elementary school teacher who specialized in Children’s Musical Theater and a father who was a Preacher’s Kid raised with singing in the boy’s choir, it was natural that Rebecca’s interest in the Arts flourished.

Her mother started songwriting during the 80’s and Rebecca followed suite with writing poetry, songs and instrumentals as a teenager in High School.

After becoming a wife and mother at age 22, she decided to put her interests in the Performing Arts aside in order to focus on being an administrative professional.
