Who am I?

I am an Air Force Brat from a family of eight. My Father was a Colonel in the Air Force (worked in Foreign Technology) and my Mother was a drop-dead gorgeous Greek lady. After I graduated from High School (Voted Most Athletic) in 1974 and then on to college in Psychology/Pre-Med, I became a Paramedic and a Firefighter in Ohio. In college, I took up Sky Diving, Scuba Diving…and even took a Hot Air Balloon ride! Four years later, tragically my boyfriend died while we were having sex…he died of a heart attack! (Came and went at the same time) I was devastated and alone so I decided to leave Ohio and move to California. During the move, in a state of Anger at God, I drank and drugged my way across the country. I partied with movie stars and rock musicians…anyone who could keep up…or I kicked you to the curb. When I got to San Francisco, California, via the fast lane, I made sure I didn’t miss a thing…so I married the drug dealer. I had it all! Fast cars, the big mansion and money! We lived and “worked” in Europe and I wore only the best designer clothes. Gucci gym shoes, Versace, Vera Wang, Chanel. We were also Gemologists, who bought and sold gem stones and Objects de Art. After a son and a divorce, I re-upped with Wildland Firefighting throughout California. As a single Mom, I fought fires from San Diego to Humboldt and raised a fine young man…even though I was deep in my addiction. I finally surrendered and moved to Lake Tahoe, got into rehab and cleaned up my act. I am grateful and blessed to have 17 years clean and sober! There is something magical about living in Tahoe. I worked at a Ski Resort as a 911 Dispatcher for 13 years. Skiing, hiking, swimming, golfing, fishing…there is nothing you can’t do outdoors here. I have trained a magnificent German Shepherd as a Service dog and we go into the Hospital every Sunday for the long-term and ICU patience. I volunteer with the Humane Society and the Tahoe Wildlife Center…I love working with animals! Today I work for the Marriott as an Engineering Coordinator….and I pet sit! “All About Pets” is my second job which I have been involved in for over 20 years! Did I mention I love animals? LOL!

What do I think about The Fashion Hero TV Series?

I think The Fashion Hero TV Series has finally brought an innovative, fresh look to what the real modeling industry has missed all these years. Kudos Brooke!! Models are not paper thin and flawless and The Fashion Hero TV Series is bringing that to light. I would be honored to be apart of this revolution!

Why would I be a great role model for this generation and inspire people as the new face of the Fashion Hero?

Why I would be a great role model! In my lifetime, I have learned that if I walk the talk and honestly stand for something I believe in with all my heart I can inspire others. I believe in me! Everything I do gets 100% of me. I’m not afraid of hard work or responsibility because I have complete confidence in myself. I follow through with my heart as well as my head and yet I stay open-minded and non-judgmental. Who am I to judge when I still have so much to learn…I am the student as well as the teacher!
