Lydia Schafer has lived most of her life in Northwest Ohio, attending Ottawa Hills Schools, The University of Toledo, and the former Medical College of Ohio. After earning a PhD in Pathology, she taught for thirteen years as an assistant professor before retiring in 2006 to finish raising her son and daughter. Having participated in theater and entertaining while growing up, her empty nest has now given her the opportunity to perform again. She can be found singing with the Plat Three Band, working with local television stations on commercials, and performing on stage with local theater productions. She still lives in Ohio with her husband, Patrick, a local physician.
