She was assistant director of the Wichita, KS chorus for 15 years and front line director of the Memphis, TN chorus for 6 years earning 1st place small chorus, 2nd place mid-size chorus, and 4th overall during her tenure. It was during this time that TJ completed a Sweet Adeline program to become a Certified Director.
