- White; White is peacekeeper. White is kind, adaptable, and a good listener. Though motivated by peace, white struggles with indecisiveness.

Four Personalities was given the following review in The Double Reed: “She composed this fun, entertaining work basing the four movements on the colors used by the Hartman Personality Test… Four Personalities is a lot of fun for oboist, pianist and audience alike. Highly recommended for college and professional recitals.”
