I graduated from Apollo College in 2000 as a Registered Medical Assistant. Returned to school in 2015, after a long battle with liver failure but, has been in total remission since June of 2016.

My interests including baking and cooking. I especially enjoy eating my masterpieces. I love to read and write. Movies every chance I get and traveling. Family is everything so Holidays and Birthdays are important to me. Without the color purple and of course, my love of sparkles, I wouldn’t be me. I love all things that glitter. Music is a universal language that I speak fluently.
