Mrs. Hering's primary instrument is trumpet and she performs today with the Southeast Michigan Wind Ensemble. Outside of the music classroom Mrs. Hering is passionate about downhill skiing and racing and spends more time than she should on the slopes of Utah and Colorado each winter. Her summers are spent hiking the Cascades and spending time with family in her native Portland, Oregon.  Mrs. Hering's proudest "productions" are her three children Teagan, Gabriel, and Kai.  Her husband, Kirk, is a reformed percussionist turned organic chemist who does forensic research and development for a chemical company in Ann Arbor.  ​
