Using performing arts as a vehicle, she spent the next 13 years in the UK coaching, mentoring and inspiring in whatever way she could to allow them to make excellent inroads  into their careers, to make them bloom, blossom and thrive under the  protection of her wings thus being integral in launching the careers of many talented individuals who "cut their teeth" at a Vocal Zones event.
