Growing up in a musical family, Alice had many opportunities to perform classical and folk music on piano, violin, viola and guitar as a child. She loved arranging music for family ensembles. When her own children were growing up, Alice taught American Red Cross First Aid Classes and worked as a computer software trainer for the University of Wyoming. The entire family spent many happy weekends downhill skiing. Alice and her husband were members of the Snowy Range Volunteer Ski Patrol for over 25 years. Alice took early retirement from the University in 2007 to devote all her time to sharing her music.
