I was born in Hornchurch Essex and worked for many years for BOAC. When I came to the US and met my husband I decided to stay in the travel business and have travelled all over the world because of my business and also as he was in the U.S.Air Force. We have 4 children and are now happily retired in the 'Avocado Capital of the World' We have one Maltese who we adopted, He is my shadow. We also adopted two kittens, Meekah and Bronte, and have 2 lovebirds and 2 parakeets. I have also enjoyed being an extra in several films and have appeared in a 'Golden Girls' segment. Having a son in Hollywood helps.
