What is one unique thing people don’t know about you – like a hobby, a former profession, or a place you’ve visited?

I lived in the jungle from the age of 7-9 with no electricity, running water, or housing with doors and learned how to collect water from the rivers, fry grasshoppers, grind corn, and basically survive with the Aztecs in a village called Teotitlan del Valle outside of Oaxaca, Mexico; I learned Spanish in a week and then Zapotec and became a young rug weaver.  They have been weaving there for over 2500 years.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?

I would be a time traveler.

What did you want to be when you were younger? 

First a Shoe Designer

Daytime TV Actress

Talk Show Host


What is your favorite kind of music and/or band?

If you could have dinner with anyone, who would you choose?

What is one thing you cannot live without?

The unconditional love of my dogs Leo and Buddha


What do you consider your motto in life?

All you have is this moment so “just be now.”

Is there anything else you’d like to share with the Ryan House community? 

At the end of the day, I want to know that in some way, shape, or form I made a difference in someone’s life.  I am super happy to be a part of this amazing team and am looking forward to working with and for Ryan House peeps!
