A performer and volunteer since she was a child, she is renowned locally for her acting/singing talents and utilizes them to host galas such as the Fabulous Forties which have raised over $100,000 for homeless children in shelters. Active on multiple non-profit boards, she is extremely passionate about the Homeless Children’s Education Fund charity and serves on the advisory board. She also volunteers in the shelter and does head-to-toe Mommy Makeovers for the ladies in transition in collaboration with other women-owned beauty businesses in Pittsburgh such as the non-profit Treasure House Fashions and the Elliven Spa. One of her greatest joys is watch RMU SESS students interact with the babies and young children in the Healthy Start House as they read to and comfort them through transitional housing.
