Rhea is a graduate of the Pasadena Playhouse with a BA in Theatre and a minor in Music and Art.  Her stage career has taken her through many valuable experiences.  She participated in a summer stock company in Manistee, Michigan under the direction of Madge Skelly, allowing Rhea to hone her costuming skills and act in minor roles for the major company and in title roles for the children’s theatre.  At the Pasadena Playhouse, among other endeavors, she was involved in musical children’s theatre, allowing her to act, sing, dance and choreograph.  Eventually, family drew her away from the long hours, and Rhea returned to school to study accounting – proving a handy skill in business as well as the non-profit world.  Her choir experience began in her middle years while living in Los Angeles.  When she moved to Jackson, WY, she joined the JH Chorale and later joined Cathedral Voices’ Treble Voices.  Rhea states that her singing experiences have enriched her mind and her heart.
