Before I came home, I was on contract with Disney Cruise Line as a Character Performer and Dancer. I loved working for Disney through the Disney College program and fell in love with my role as a Character Performer at Walt Disney world so I auditioned for DCL and was on contract until the current situation in the world right now. If it wasn’t for my mom taking me to my first Disney audition in 2018, I wouldn’t have achieved my goals!

At first I really had a hard time with this quarantine but I’m slowly getting used to it. I’ve mostly been doing my school work which can be quite a lot at sometimes but I’m trying to keep myself active and motivated. I miss my school a lot which is something I never thought I’d […]

I remember my first Mother’s Day. We never tried to get pregnant because it was, pretty much, not on the table for me. An exploratory surgery removed damage and revealed a uterus with multiple defects. Safely carrying to full-term would be both high-risk and very unlikely. Married almost two years, I had settled into my […]

Here’s some ~rusty~ guitar playing as a Mother’s Day gift for my kind, wonderful, generous, and beautiful mom! You’ve given me the world and you taught me how to be a good person and to be accepting of everyone and that is the greatest gift. You always root for us in whatever we set our minds to and have taught us to believe in even our wildest dreams. I’m sad I couldn’t be with you today but can’t wait to see you and your new puppy again soon. Thanks for always being a night owl with me and staying up to watch SNL and The Office and for being there for me always.

What makes me happy is to be able to see the smile on someone’s face when I give them one of my pieces of rock art OR a blanket I created OR when I have helped them! I retired from the Bureau of Land Management – Department of the Interior where I was an Administrative […]

My mother is my true inspiration. I call her Little Momma because she’s under 5″, but her personality, heart, soul, and compassion are humongous! My dad died when I was 16. My mom had never worked a day in her life, but she put on her big girl panties and found a job. A job […]
