We’d sit on the floor around the coffee table, spoons in hand, laughing and talking, building an even stronger bond with one another. As teenagers, every six […]
WHO AM I...
HERE'S ME IN A NUTSHELL!
I suffer from serious anxiety but am also somehow fearless – in my 53 years I’ve been a professional ice skater, I wrote game tips while working at SEGA, I’ve raised two interesting young adults, taught craft classes, performed burlesque, built a professional career without going to college, created and produced a show in a “little theater”, moved cross country, then half-way back again, so I’ve lived on all three coasts, just this year I appeared on the cover of a Houston magazine, judged a bathing suit competition, saw my first opera, and decided that it’s okay to take some time to build on my ideas for multiple streams of income so I can grow old with some security and not be a burden to my family.

BURLESQUE = TRANSFORMATION + EMPOWERMENTⒸThe BIG Burly Project
The generosity of spirit is a quality important to humanity, I've found that giving my skills to volunteer organizations feels good.
I've volunteered for an all-girls youth group, a parents organization, a group supporting veterans, and more recently with the Bayou City Performing Arts working on their marketing & communications.BCPA
Everyone goes through transitional phases in life, cis and trans women alike, and it’s easy to lose yourself during the process of finding the real you. Low self-esteem or a negative self-image can impact how we parent, our openness towards friends, how we love, and how we allow ourselves to be loved, it alters our perception of worthiness in all of our relationships. I’ve developed a workshop series, a Facebook group, and blog to support women in transitional phases of life.
