My life is full of so many blessings. To make a living doing what I love is the cake. Then to have found a purpose to make it all worth while is the icing. But you add in acknowledgements for it all – well, they are truly the candles on top that add shine and sparkle to my endless gratitude.


The below honors are from various institutions and organizations all over the country for a variety of activities ranging from acting to animal advocacy to good ol’ fashion inspiration. Honor, indeed.
