    I heard Steve Harvey tell his story about receiving a call from Apollo Show to be on TV as a standup comedian (GIG OF A LIFETIME) but he had no money to get to the city so he could go. That same day he received a call to do a local show that would pay him just enough money to get a flight to the Apollo. It inspired me to always believe. There is a way. Don’t give up on your dream.

  • Tell us an interesting detail about you that many might not know?

  • What Charity do you support? Please tell us more about your involvement?

    I support March of Dimes. Both my two children were born preemie at 2 lbs. They spent months in a NICU before I could bring them home. I watch parents like me struggle to be there every day with them and worried if they will survive being born so early. March of Dimes provides resources and financial support for the babies and families. Once a year parents get together to March and spread awareness.
