She has always had a nurturing nature and a love for children of all ages. Singing before she could talk, Noelle grew up and studied vocal music at the L.A. High School for the Arts where she worked with LA Opera. While attending California State University, Fullerton Noelle studied theatre and also worked in wardrobe for Fullerton Civic Light Opera. After being out of school for over 15 years, she transferred as a senior to Texas State University, San Marcos and graduated in 2017 with a B.A. in Theatre and Music.  Noelle is a Southern California native and a versatile singer/songwriter singing many genres of music including opera, jazz, French jazz, bossanova, rock, pop, country, blues, musical theatre, Hawaiian and Celtic folk music.  Noelle is a birth/postpartum doula and teaches beginning bellydance for mommies before and after childbirth.
