Tell us a bit about yourself.
I was born in Detroit and moved to Phoenix in 8th grade. All 5 kids and a dog drove out west and my dad commuted for the next two years on many a red eye flight. I played tennis at Xavier, where we were the state champs and went on to play all 4 years at the University of Arizona. I moved to San Francisco and married my first husband where we enjoyed the fun city life as a young married couple. Several years later, my husband was diagnosed with Hodgkins. We moved back to Phoenix to be close to family and had our son Jack in 1995. My husband passed away just three years later in 1998. It was the most devastating moment in my life while simultaneously being the greatest gift. It allowed me to look at life differently. You learn to really cherish life and appreciate how fragile it is. Losing my husband made me really love life, love kids, love people. I truly found peace within myself. I remarried and have a beautiful daughter with my second husband and just recently founded Game Plan Scholarships with my BFF, Allyson. It is a company to help high school kids take the right steps toward getting athletic scholarships for college. Kids don't realize that it really is a full-time job and a lot of pressure. We act as the go-between and mentor to these kids and guide them, so that they are aware of all the possibilities before them. I love working with people and that is what makes me so passionate about Game Plan.
