KC began her colorguard connection at the age of seven, as a spectator of the 1977 DCI Prelims in her hometown of Boulder, Colorado. She then followed her passion for performing by marching with the Blue Knights, Thunderbolts, Emerald Marquis, and the Cadets of Bergen County. Continuing her love for the activity, she has been an instructor for many groups including –Pomona HS, Plymouth-Canton HS, Pope HS, Seminole HS, Father Ryan HS, Forte Winterguard, Oracle, Opus X, Paramount, Blue Knights, Crossmen and served as a Caption Head at both the Phantom Regiment and the Madison Scouts.
Currently, KC travels around the country to consult with various performing groups and to serve as a judge, clinician, and commentary analyst for marching band and winter guard competitions. She enjoys live dialogue and video discussion with many groups throughout the fall and winter seasons–exchanging and brainstorming ideas about design, choreography, and performance.
KC believes in empowering the performers into being their biggest, most brilliant, and luminous selves while holding the space for the instructors to achieve their artistic vision. She loves working with a collaborative, and creative team of human beings on a project. In her “real” life, KC is an artist, a writer, and a teacher of authentic and expressive art, which allows her to delve fully into movement, voice, photography, video, performance art, drawing, play, painting, and found-object sculpture as methods of expression and exploration. She calls Nashville, Tennessee her home now and this is where she enjoys, writing, gardening, hiking, meditation, art, and playing with her dogs.
