"My mother taught me to be kind to everyone no matter what their station in life is. It is simple and easy and well worth it. It has always amazed me to find attorneys who are rude to Judges’ assistants. Do they think the Judges don’t find out? The other was from a college roommate’s grandmother who said, “One bed, one purse, one church makes for a good marriage.” It has held true for over 33 years of marriage."

Current Location: Mount Airy, MD

Among other celebrities, she had dinner with baseball’s Mickey Mantle and worked concert security for several rock concerts. In her first year, she performed with a group of dorm mates in the College Gong Show where they were “Meatball” and sang and danced to “Paradise by the Dashboard Light.” They also won a local radio station talent show and ended up becoming the opening act for Cheech and Chong at the Harrisburg Forum. She never expected anything like that to come from her college experience which has become quite the icebreaker story.
