Rev. Fish was born in Ann Arbor, MI, and grew up in Louisville, KY.

She graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music, Philadelphia, PA, where she studied with Orlando Cole.  She continued her studies at the graduate level at Indiana University, Bloomington, IN, where her teacher was Janos Starker.

Rev. Fish came to Washington, DC in 1994 to be a member of the Chamber Orchestra of “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band.  She served as assistant principal cellist of that ensemble.  She appeared as soloist with the ensemble in Victor Herbert’s Cello Concerto in E Minor.  Rev. Fish retired from the Marine Band in 2014 after 20 years.

She was also the principal cellist of Concert Artists of Baltimore, with whom she performed as soloist in Beethoven’s Triple Concerto for piano, violin, and cello.  She was a founding member of both the Sunrise Quartet of Washington, DC (with violinist Claudia Chudacoff - also on this recording) and the National Gallery of Art String Quartet (also with violinist Claudia Chudacoff.)

After retiring from the Marine’s, Rev. Fish moved to St. Petersburg FL and pursued chaplaincy training.  As of 2019 she now works as an ordained Buddhist/Interfaith Chaplain at Tampa General Hospital.
