Lou Anne started entertaining children in 1982. She worked in the children's recreation program for kids ages 8 to 18 where she was given free reign to design and implement several creative activities. She also coached and volunteered for many YMCA programs. In 1990 she submitted songs for a children's cable TV show. It was at this time Lou Anne found her niche in the children's music area. Lou Anne's background being in nursing and education helped her design and steer her children's music to the entertainer she is today. Lou Anne has done work with puppets and they will be an important component for her children's shows in the future. Lou Anne's work with puppets has come from experiences working in alternative school settings where music and puppetry became an expressive communication tool.
