It’s time for a woman to be President

In 2015, I will be the first woman president of PPA in 10 years! Professional Photographers of America is the largest photographic association in the world and I am honored to be a part of it!


Before I worked in the photography industry, I was a professional singer for 25 years! I sang in LA and that is where I developed my love of photography. Above is my headshot from my singing days!

Turner and Hooch, I was there!

I helped my friend Charley buy all the food and fruit needed for the kitchen demolition seen. THEN, I sat by Tom Hanks and watched it be filmed! Click here to watch the scene from Turner and Hooch! Watch closely and you will see the breakfast nook where Tom and I sat all day! Ps… there were 4 dogs!
