Roni grew up listening toand loving her parents' soundtracks of Broadway plays. Some of her earliest memories are of mimicking Shirley Temple singing and dancing. As a child, she had a part in a professional presentation of the Sound of Music, playing one of the Von Trapp children. Being a performer always remained a dream in the back of her mind. Although she was always placed in higher math and science programs in school, she made time to be in band, orchestra and flag corps.
As a young adult, Roni had a life changing encounter with Jesus. This new relationship stirred the performing arts desire in her, but now for worship. This desire led her to participating in choir and the praise and worship team; writing, directing and acting in productions; and helping pioneer worship movement ministry in her church. Roni was a ministry leader for Judah Movement Ministries for many years. The ministry included Hebraic and other choreographed dance, spontaneous interpretive movement, sign language for worship, processionals, and the creation of and use of banners and flags for worship.
Roni recently moved to East Tennessee to be closer to her family. She enjoys spending time with her loved ones as mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She is also an active member of her new church, Heritage Fellowship.
Roni's heart-felt mission is to teach, impart, and encourage the art of movement for worship. Her desire is to enable believers to bring forth a beauty in their worship that reflects and brings glory to God.
