Mya began ringing handbells in the 7th grade after the organ lessons weren’t going well. She continued ringing through high school and college then took a break during military overseas assignments. Mya enjoys ringing at Distinctly Bronze events and substituting at various churches around New England. Mya recently retired from the Department of Defense and lives in Eliot, Maine with her husband Tom and their cat. In moderation, they enjoy bicycling canoeing, and travelling.
