Mindy has been performing since the age of eight. Her original goal in life was to be the world’s first “singing Heart Surgeon”. Unfortunately, medical school didn’t pan out; so she decided to heal the world through music and as a result, she has been studying different vocal techniques, voice science, and vocal health her entire life. Mindy has studied with many nationally and internationally renowned vocal instructors, and was a vocal performance major at the University of Utah.
Mindy is part of an incredible voice team in Salt Lake City with top ENT David Palmer, SLP and Vocologist Karin Titze Cox, and voice scientist and Vocologist Dr. Ingo Titze. Mindy holds a certificate in Clinical Vocology from The National Center for Voice and Speech. Mindy holds certificate in laryngeal manipulation. Mindy is the creator of one of the top Educational Apps called Voice Tutor.
For over 12 years Mindy has been in charge of education for an artist development camp in Los Angeles and well as international teacher training programs and conferences. She is frequently asked to present at voice conferences for singers, actors, Speech Language Pathologists, ENT’s and Laryngologists.
Not only is Mindy a technician she is also a performer so she understands first hand the demands and stresses on artists. Mindy’s performance career has taken her all over the world. Mindy had the opportunity to perform with some of those considered “Broadway Royalty” on an Album by composer Scott Alan, “Live from Birdland”. Mindy has been both behind the director’s chair as well as on the stage through Utah.
In 2015 Mindy was awarded Best of Stage for Voice Instruction and has received Best of Salt Lake City for Private Music Instruction for the past three years.
Mindy understands how hard it is for artists to make connections to the music world. She is known to bring in top industry professionals to not only help her clients connect and network but to help artists and musicians hone in on their skills and further develop themselves and their artistry.
Mindy has a full studio in Salt Lake City, Utah and students around the world via Skype or Face Time. Her studio has a roster or clients from the novice to the professional, all genre’s and styles, the injured or rehab voice, transgender, motivational speakers, and any other voice user seek out her help.
