I had a classical education in piano literature, music theory and voice through renowned conservatories. I believe in the power of music to heal and empower and I have spent my life as a musical artist, performer, teacher, and composer.

I am an entrepreneur. In the ’80s I started my first business with no income and no clients, and a few years later sold a thriving main street storefront. My husband and I are a team in our consulting firm, and have worked with many people on their real estate and investment property transactions, renovations, building projects and much more.
Music For All
In 2014, we founded the Jolee-Jaffa Music Foundation, Inc. a 501(C)(3) charitable organization that provides a free music education to underprivileged children, and music therapy classes for seniors suffering from Alzheimer ’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and traumatic brain injury.
Internationally the charity provides ukuleles, music instruction and meals at lesson time to children in a remote Philippine village.
My most joyful and rewarding venture was raising five magnificent children – now my friends. Learn about our family band, CJA, ‘Arizona’s Best Pop Band’.
