Her work has enjoyed professional recordings by choruses such as Choral Arts NW, Oregon Repertory Singers and Canticum Chamber Choir of Australia. Recent compositions include the 30 minute choral cycle And All Shall Be Well for chorus, string quartet and piano on the theme of legacy and remembrance, which enjoyed a Carnegie Hall New York premiere last May, A Roof and a Bed on the theme of homelessness, commissioned by Portland Lesbian Choir, and Join in Gathering, commissioned by the Greater Seattle Choral Consortium and premiered in Fall 2022 to celebrate the return to communal singing.
