What is your story? What connects you with music and why do you volunteer with MOC? ”
“I know from experience how draining it can be (emotionally and physically) to sit with a loved one in a hospital room during lengthy visits. When I came upon the site for MOC, I immediately applied to guide. I grew up with a love of music, but have little musical talent of my own. This is my way to be involved in a musical morale-boost for patients, as well as for their visiting family & friends.”
What is your favorite #MOCmoment? “When a patient starts tapping his or her foot to the music, especially when they initially seemed lukewarm about having a musician in – that never fails to bring a smile to my face.”
