5 THINGS YOU WANT US TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR IMMEDIATE FAMILY


I am a student at the Culinary Institute of Arts and a complete foodie! I am addicted to almost every show, especially anything Rachel Ray. I grew up in the South so everything was fried, including our veggies; but as a heart survivor, I try to cook healthy dishes. The key to any heart is through the stomach, literally, so I am having fun cooking through some of the American Heart Associations cookbooks.


I have been working with the American Heart Association since the loss of my Father in 2000. My Mother had always been the sick one with multiple strokes and a double valve replacement starting in her 30s. My Dads passing was unexpected at 56. We lost my Mom in 2006. Both died from heart disease. In 2010 I had a heart attack and surgery. Heart is my life every day. I am a survivor.


I love our fur babies! They travel with us everywhere and even have European Union passports and bilingual chips. We lived in Germany for a few years so we were able to travel to 23 countries with our fur babies in tow. They are family and mine are part of who I am.


I attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and Second City. I believe in the art of laughter. Improv is my favorite. Comedy has gotten me through a lot of situations. Sometimes the best cure for any ailment is a really good belly laugh.
