Beginning her piano studies in her hometown of Russell, Manitoba, Charmaine is classically trained in piano, organ, and flute, and holds a Master of Music degree following studies at the Universities of Manitoba, Toronto and the Glenn Gould School. She has studied organ with Helen Bergen, Lottie Enns-Braun, and studied at the RCCO Summer Academy in 2023.

Prior to her posting at McClure, Charmaine held posts as music director and organist at churches in Toronto, Thunder Bay, and Winnipeg, including Anglican, Catholic, and United denominations. She is on call as one of the organists with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, her favourite performances include Handel's Messiah, and she is looking forward to upcoming performances of Zimmer's "Interstellar". Charmaine is currently the president of the Royal Canadian College of Organists, Winnipeg Centre, and incoming Chair of the Editorial Committee for 'Organ Canada', RCCO's quarterly publication.


Charmaine is also an avid flutist, working with students of all ages, and performing in solo and chamber concerts around Winnipeg. She has enjoyed performing with the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra and as a substitute with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. Charmaine's family has a history of church musicians, and she is glad to contribute to worship at McClure United Church.
