Throughout my life, I have participated as a runway and photography model. As a younger woman, I made television commercials and danced professionally. This background has allowed me to get involved with charity events, especially Fashion Shows!
For many years I was on the Board of Eagles Wings of Grace International, as the chair of Ministerial Outreach. This non-profit organization benefits women of economic distress and helps them to restore their dignity and financial freedom. They held many fashion shows that I was able to be in or direct. This is a true joy to share my knowledge and expertise.
Currently, my volunteer work serves on the Board of Advisors at TROT, Therapeutic Riding of Tucson. TROT is a nonprofit organization that helps children, adults, and veterans with disabilities through equine-assisted activities and therapies. This charity is near and dear to my heart. The love of horses and their ability to help heal people I’ve witnessed through my granddaughter Chloe.
TROT: Heroes Hearts and Horses Gala 2021
This 501c3 is near and dear to my heart.
Here's a little background...
To enrich the lives of people with special needs using equine assisted activities and therapies to improve physical, mental, social, and emotional well-being.
To use the power of the human/horse connection to heal individuals of all abilities.
I am on the board as the Director of Fundraising. Each year we host a Gala Event as one of the main fundraisers to support this charity.
My role with this event was to oversee the decor both inside and outside along with assisting with the Silent Auction. It was truly a spectacular night. By the generosity of many, we were able to raise a significant amount.
