Tina grew up in the Presbyterian Church, as the daughter of Pastor Barbara Haddon. Church has always been her second home, and is where her love of music (and specifically singing) was born and raised.
A classically trained soprano, Tina attended college at the University of Redlands, in California, and did her Masters degree in vocal performance at the Manhattan School of Music.
Tina has spent the majority of her career as a professor of voice, music educator and choral conductor. She has also worked in the non-profit sector as Directors of Education and Community Engagement.
In 2016, Tina and her family moved from San Diego to Saint Louis, where her husband works at a custom database design firm. Her daughter, Sedona, is a student at Truman State University, and her son, Porter attends Eureka High School.
