With 40 years of experience to her credit, Ms. Winkler has cultivated a career of excellence as a musician and entertainer. Since 2005 she has been owner and entertainer of The Swing Sisters – Swing Sister Entertainment. Alongside her partner, Nancy Entstrasser, the duo has excelled as a premier singing duo in South Bend, Indiana, specializing in music for memory care. Their motto is: “We ARE the 1890’s – 1960’s!!” Additionally, as of 2007, Ms. Winkler has been the full-time organist/pianist at Sacred Heart Parish at the University of Notre Dame.

Receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree (1979) in Modern Languages has opened up many avenues translating as a paralegal, and various fields in the aerospace industry. Since 1991 Ms. Winkler has been an educator with numerous schools in California, Texas and Indiana. Outside of her primary professional interests, she has participated as a leader and member of the Boy Scouts of America-Circle Ten Council in Dallas, Texas.

Knowing what services are needed is a specialty of Ms. Winkler. For two (2) years she had a program, “German Hour with Gabi of The Swing Sisters” in a small Lake Michigan beach town which had a large German-speaking population, most of whom have now passed on. Speaking German to them, singing German folk songs and talking about the music and composers was a hit. Soon, the program turned to English-speaking only as other residents wanted to participate. Ms. Winkler is most notably proud of all her work as an entertainer and her creative ingenuity in music programming.
