Thank you for stopping by my site. Since you’re here, I thought I’d take a minute to tell you a bit more about myself and how I got
to where I am today.
am originally from Alameda, California. My parents and #1 fans are Dale (a
Vietnam vet) and Julie. I have a brother, Dale and sister-in-law Andrea. I am
also the proud Aunt of a niece and nephew I love more than I can express!! I
was blessed to not only be raised by my parents but by my grandparents as well;
whose guidance and beliefs have shaped much of whom I am today.
think I was maybe five when I first saw the movie version of Oklahoma! and
said, “Mommy, I want to be her”! From that day on all I
wanted to do was sing, act, and move to New York City. I remember my Dad and
brother would go back packing and such and I would stay home with my Mom
watching movie musicals and eating chocolate.
wanting to become “stage-parents”
my parents encouraged me to be a kid now and act later. I was in choir, but I
also followed my brother into whatever sport he did. This included soccer,
volleyball, horseback riding, and many more. Eventually I went on my own and
That’s right for seven years I was a cheerleader, ranking
9th in the nation as an individual. When I first started cheering they would
play the Whitney Houston version of the National Anthem before every game and I
would daydream it was me. I was about eleven years old, I wanted to be Whitney
Houston and marry Michael Jackson; I had big dreams.
school was a very busy time. I was in choir, drama, swim team, cheerleading,
dance team, and leadership. Senior year, I was selected to dance in the Macy’s
Thanksgiving Day Parade. I went to New York City for a week and vowed to move
back in two years.
high school, I went to Diablo Valley College where I received an A.A. degree
with honors. It was there that I met two of the greatest people I’m
sure I ever will. My cheerleading coach Glenda Coccimiglio, and my acting
teacher Jim Kirkwood. They were mentors and inspirations who taught me more

Junior year, I transferred to the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New
York City. Since graduating from there, I have worked in regional theatres
across the country, Off-Off Broadway, cabarets, film, television, and
commercials. I even sang in a cover band and recorded a Pop/R&B single with
of my career and family, I have many loves. I attend CKE Church and love
having a family there. I have spent a great deal of my time the past few years
in ministry. I was honored to run a Women’s Ministry, an Arts Ministry, lead
Worship for several Ministries around NYC and much more. I love to love on
people and pull greatness out of them. I love Central park and swinging on the
swings. When out of the city I love to hike; and be outdoors as much as
possible. I still love sports (boxing is my favorite). I also love to read. I
have always loved Marilyn Monroe and I share her desire to always learn.
that’s me in a nut shell, I hope you’ve
enjoyed my story.
