Class Year: 1976
Residing In: Dallas, TX USA
Spouse/Partner: Phil
Occupation: Musician - Harpist, Singer, Pianist
Children: Cameron, born 1993
Yes! Attending Reunion

I received an Associates of Arts from Phoenix College, then transferred to the University of North Texas. After graduation I performed as a singer/actress in theaters throughout the U.S. It was on a national tour of A CHRISTMAS TOUR that I met the man that I would marry in 1985, Phillip Allen. My career took a slight detour, and I ended up making my living as a harpist, rather than as a musical theater/opera performer.

School Story:

I always knew that West High was strong in music and academics, which I valued, but it wasn't until I met people from high schools all over the country that I realized what a special place West High really was. It was easy to make friends and hang out with a variety of people. The clique system was not rigid, as it was at so many other high schools. The faculty also seemed united in making West High a great school for all, rather than creating little kingdoms.

Hi Joan,

How long have you lived in Corinth? We're practically neighbors by Texas standards! I attended UNT from 1978 - 1981, married a native Texan back in 1985 and have lived in Dallas ever since. Phil and I have one son, Cameron, who was born in 1993.

It's great to see an old friend living in my neck of the woods. Let's get together sometime and catch up on our lives since West High.
