 JustA LittleAbout Me....

I'm a former television news reporter turned prosecutor and now a SAG-AFTRA professional actress based in Los Angeles.  

 

As a television news reporter, I covered crime, politics, features, breaking news stories, and entertainment. Over the years,  I was fortunate to interview many inspiring individuals including former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal, gymnast Bart Conner, country singer Leann Rimes and R&B legend Patti LaBelle. I also covered the Black Entertainment Television (BET) awards show as a news reporter for KTNV-TV, ABC in Las Vegas. Of course, I covered a lot snowstorms as well as a rookie reporter at WOWT-NBC in the midwest. 

As an actress, I played the lead role of "Pecola" in the highly successful production of Toni Morrison's "The Bluest Eye" at Celebration Arts Theatre. The Bluest Eye was named one of the best stage productions of the year. Since that time, I've played roles in several films and commercials, including a featured role in a national commercial. 

In addition to journalism, my legal career and acting, I've been active in a number of civic organizations over the years, including the Nebraska AIDS Project, Omaha Girls Club, The Clark County Stay In School Program and the San Francisco Black Coalition on HIV & AIDS. While attending law school I served as a student teacher and a mock trial coach. I'm also deeply committed to transforming the lives of children in foster care. 

And did I mention I love to travel?? I've never traveled to a country I didn't enjoy.  Approximately 15 and counting...... :)
