Shondra recorded some songs with John Watt and the Gulf Coast 6. It was a blast to be in the studio creating something new and fresh. Each member of the group has a different background. John and Ray come from a rock background, Andrew and Daleton come from more of a jazz background, Tevon has played with a lot of big names, and Shondra comes from a musical theatre background. It was a great fusion of styles.

Shondra was excited to be interviewed by Joseph DeCross for his blog at The link to their conversation is at:

She is also busy working in her part-time job of being a Standardized Patient at the University of Texas Medical School, Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children’s Hospital, and, occasionally, M.D. Anderson. At UTMC, she is also a Standardized Patient Teaching Assistant, where she helps 1st year students learn the proper technique for a total body exam. This year, she has also been learning ultrasound.
