Let's do this differently! Everyone dreads having to write these bios so let's make it count! Let's start with some fun facts about me, just so you know who you will be connecting with....let's go!

* I am originally from NYC (The Bronx).
* My favorite color is blue.
* I believe in giving grace to people...we all need that.
* I love Yorkies.
* I love to dye my hair red.
* Sometimes I like to drive faster than the posted speed limit. LOL

Now, let's get to the REAL information!....check me out below.
