AS A SMALL-TOWN GIRL GROWING UP IN WEST VIRGINIA, I LOVED DANCING, CHEERLEADING AND POSING FOR THE CAMERA. AT AN EARLY AGE, I KNEW I HAD MANY DREAMS TO ACCOMPLISH. IN HIGH SCHOOL, I WAS SELECTED AS A TEEN BOARD MODEL. THIS LED TO MANY PAGEANT INVITATIONS, COMMERCIALS, AND MORE MODELING OPPORTUNITIES. AT THE AGE OF 21, I WON MISS WEST VIRGINIA AND BY 23 I WAS A TWO-TIME MRS. WEST VIRGINIA. FINISHING AS 2ND RUNNER UP NATIONALLY IN MRS. USA. WHICH WAS TELEVISED NATIONWIDE. WHILE PURSUING MY MODELING CAREER, I ALSO ATTENDED MARSHALL UNIVERSITY. I WAS ON THE MARSHALL UNIVERSITY BASKETBALL DANCE QUAD AND CHARLESTON GUNNERS SEMI-PRO CHEERLEADING SQUAD. BEING ON THE CHARLESTON GUNNERS LED TO NATIONAL ATTENTION BY BEING TELEVISED ON ESPN.

I WAS FEATURED IN COMMERCIALS, NEWSPAPER ADS, POSTERS, AND POSTCARDS. NEXT, I GRADUATED WITH MY REGISTERED NURSE DEGREE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF CHARLESTON WITH HONORS.AFTER COLLEGE, I BECAME A SUCCESSFUL BRIDAL AND FASHION SHOW COORDINATOR. THIS LED TO PAGEANT COACHING AND I BECAME AN INSTRUCTOR FOR BARBIZON MODELING SCHOOL. AFTER THIS PERIOD, I MARRIED AND HAD THREE BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN NATALIE, NICK, AND JULIANNA.

I focused on raising my kids and took a break from modeling. Once they were school age, I began down the path of continuing my dreams and being the best mom I could be. I got in the best shape of my life and started playing USTA tennis on a league. I started modeling again and landed in my own 16 months swimsuit calendar. A portion of the calendar proceeds went to the West Virginia Veterans Association. I had calendar signings all over the east coast including NYC.

To my surprise, one of my calendar pictures “hut shot” was featured on billboards from California to Las Vegas in 2011. My children and I moved cross country to San Diego in 2010 and I had spokesmodel /model jobs for various companies including a commercial for Leo Hammel Jewelers based in San Diego. I transitioned again for a few years and became the publisher for Renaissance and had clients throughout southern California. Doing the PR and marketing as well for the company. I was fortunate to continue modeling for runway and print being featured in several magazines. I moved to Temecula, CA to be closer to LA to further my television/film career and for a calmer upbringing for my children. Also, CEO of Beverly Hills Bling Boss an online women’s fashion business. I filmed a few reality show pilots and I just had my first supporting role this past year in Ace and the Christmas Miracle (alongside my Maltese Coco Chanel) that was released nationwide and streaming on Prime Video. I have a few projects that are in the works currently. Reality show 50 and Flawless where I am an associate producer, another pilot where I will be a producer, and several films to read for this coming year. I feel very blessed to have this rich full life. I know I have more dreams and goals to accomplish!
