Originally from Minnesota, I have spent my entire adult life in Chicago. I started acting later in life, at the age of 54. I had just ended a 33-yr. career as a Flight Attendant with United Airlines when acting sort of fell into my lap. When one door closes, a window opens, and boy, what a window! It started out with a background role in a Nicholas Cage film which snowballed into a full-fledged career of not only acting, but print modeling, dancing, theater, and voiceover. I even helped produce two online shows filmed entirely on Zoom during the pandemic. I leave no stone unturned. Never have.
My current project is a 26-episode web series talk show called 'Just Us!' which I helped create and co-host.
When not acting, I am busy being a foster mom to rescue dogs. Reach Rescue in Mundelein, IL supplies me with a steady stream of homeless dogs to love until they find their forever homes.
