Born in Iowa, Baker spent her childhood in St. Joseph, Michigan and graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Theatre Education and Classical Voice. Along with stage credits theatrically, she has sung professionally on stage, and has written, produced and performed various one-woman musical cabaret shows in both Los Angeles and New York. She has taught in the local schools as an elementary vocal music consultant for more than 15 years, and reminds more than 1400 students each week the joys of singing together and encouraging them to always sing from their hearts.
