Hi there everyone! Its been forever it seems since I have seen anyone from school... so here are some little factoids about me and what I have been up to since my geeky days as a teen: Leaving the pacific northwest area in 1986, southern california bound, I landed in Santa Barbara California, a very beautiful, relaxed sun shine filled beach community. Other life experiences and work opportunities brought me further south to los angeles county area (2 hours south). I had always loved the arts and entertainment industry, I then was hired and took on a new career in 1987 at the Walt Disney Studios/Motion Pictures Division, based out of Burbank, California. Working in the pre and post production of animation and live action films... it was quite fun and a very exciting time working there. Having a family and other aspirations took a front seat years later, so I left Disney in 1993 to pursue those goals. Entertainment industry kept calling, although different this time and very good part time hours, I worked on various on-screen made for TV movies, other TV/Film/haircare and skincare Commercial work which lead me into a union membership with the Screen Actors Guild. Now, presently 2009.... I am a Proud Mom of 3 teenage children, a daughter and 2 sons. I live in a beach community in southern California, another very relaxing beach living away from the hustle-bustle of the busy city, but still close enough where there's lots to do... best of both worlds. I enjoy my first love that had always been a calling to me since I was a little girl - Writing! ...being an inspirational/poetic narrative writer, have since published a book in a small venue with some fellow inspirational writers, I have also exhibited some of my poetic artwork on canvas at some local southern california museums for special exhibitions, women's studies programs, and charity fund raisers to help support women whom have escaped a battered home situation, sculpting new lives for themselves. This is a very exciting Passion and Mission of mine, for these women are a true inspiration in themselves, just in their mere existence that they are here to share their inspirationa...Expand for more
l story with others, myself included. What a Blessed Life! My inspirational art will hopefully inspire many that we can indeed overcome any obstacle in our Life, and help others along the way in our journey of finding our Life's Mission of why we are here... making each day purposeful and meaningful. Sometimes in our darkest hour, we are actually being shown a bright light in the pathway of the direction we are to go next. I enjoy giving makeovers to the women I have met through my other venue I mentioned above... as they start their new life over... why not a new look on the outside too, right?! I love helping anyway I can. I live to give, so to speak! Thank you God for this gift you have given me. I try to do some travelling now and again, love seeing and experiencing new cultures and languages. My once significant other is no longer with me as I lost him to tragedy over one year ago. But, I carry fond memories of the beauty we once shared, and the many of thousands of unbelievable moments experienced over the years together. You'll see and share in my love for some of the most beautiful moments in a few of my pics I have posted here. To have loved so greatly, I feel honored and Blessed. Everyone reading this, please remember: That's what Life is all about... making it count, every moment. There are no accidents in Life... There is purpose in all, just try to use the 'glass half full' theory. We have met for a purpose. Lets use it for the purpose of Good. In an instant... You never know what could happen. Crisis can intervene and take the Life we once knew, erase it and take it all away. So, Find your Love, Find your Mission, Find your Passion... and just make it work, and make it happen! And... no matter what, keep moving forward... positively, staying focused on the goodness in our Life! Thankyou for reading this far... thank you for letting me spread a little of my story, hope and inspiration to you. Make it a greatly purposeful day everyone! You all have a special gift... share it! You are truly Blessed... Be an inspiration! Pass it on! ;~) Hope everyone is doing great! Talk to you soon so we can catch up!!
