She then attended Florida State University where she received a Masters of Music degree in voice. She went on to the University of South Carolina and received a Doctor of Musical Arts degree also in voice. She has a level one certification in Kodaly and Orff Music Education and is a 20 year certified National Board Teacher. Dr. Roberts married David Gregory "Greg" Crump in July of 2019 and moved to the lake. She no longer has farm animals but loves to feed the fish!
