She was an actress having studying for a BFA Theatre in undergrad at Radford University and Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatics Arts in London, UK, until tragedy struck. She had a heart attack caused by a cold virus that attacked her heart. 12 years later she had a heart transplant and two weeks before that, she had a stroke. She couldn’t walk. She couldn’t speak. One year after my heart transplant she got throat cancer caused by the fact she was on immune suppressant drugs. That was 6 years ago. Now she can walk and dance! She can speak, sort of. That’s why she’d turn her attention to Burlesque because it’s Expression Without Words. About 3 years ago she took lessons at the Boom Boom Basics Burlesque & Performing Arts Studio in Richmond under the tutelage of Deanna Danger and she have never looked back. She can give a sense of empowerment to people with disabilities i.e. stroke, cancer, heart transplant and heart attack patients. She’s a survivor not a victim.
