As fate would have it, I was born during the full moon on Halloween in Chicago, Illinois. As a 3rd generation Coloradan, this came as somewhat of a shock. I have had so many lives. I’ve been a typical college student, a biker chick, an Aspen waitress, tuned in, turned, on, and dropped out. I lived in a cabin with no electricity, no running water, and only wood heat for 10 years. Yes, we had an outhouse. I’ve worked as a cocktail waitress in cowboy bars & taught country swing.
After I had two sons and got divorced, I joined the 20th century and went to Chiropractic College, graduated, and got my degree at age 40. I opened a private practice which has served hundreds of people over the last 30+ years.
My creative spark had been put on hold, so I once again rewrote the script and restarted the fire of acting at age 59. I have had the honor of working with so many wonderful actors in commercials, TV, film and stage, and I feel like I am just beginning. Getting my SAG card at 70 was also an honor and a reward for my hard work. My job is to support and help tell the story whatever and wherever it may be. With love.
