Formidable Woman Magazine did a feature on me in August/September 2019:
I am a 55+ model and actor from the Greater Philadelphia area.
In 2014 at the age of 49, I started a journey in the "modeling and acting" world and have been active in the field up to the present time. Previous to this, I had been a "stay-at-home" homeschooling Mom to my two daughters.
Although I had a career before motherhood, spending quality family time will always be one of the best decisions I have ever made. Time is a gift.
I am a wife and Mom first, and the experience I have gained in recent years in the field of modeling, advertising and commercials has been interesting and fun.
My main line of work is the foundation I work for, The St. Raymond Nonnatus Foundation for Freedom, Family, and Faith, and it is a blessing to help others.
In addition, I host a weekly TV show on RVNTV on-line, "The Positive Side", interviewing people doing good things and spreading positivity.
I enjoy the diversity of the work I do and feel blessed by God with opportunities to serve and use the gifts God has given me.
It is rewarding.
My experience in the acting/modeling field ranges from background work in TV, local and national TV commercials, spokesperson work, QVC skincare progressionals, pharmaceutical ads, and online and print modeling and acting. Working as a TV host on-line has given me even more experience in public speaking and on-camera. This experience has also enhanced my main line of work as the director of a non-profit making outreach to people in need of support and our outreach. I consider these opportunities as a way to serve God and others in a greater way for His glory.
I have a standard with the work I accept in the field and do my best to accept jobs that reflect my life standards, goodness and positivity.
With all of this said, I am honored to be the director for the St. Raymond Nonnatus Foundation for Freedom, Family, and Faith since it is my primary profession. Serving the Lord in this way is an honor for me. It is a true gift to be able to help families and individuals through the work of this Catholic foundation. Learn more about the foundation at our website Nonnatus.org. We are an expression and an application of the charism of the Mercedarian Religious Order.
I love my Catholic faith.
Since "Catholic" means universal, God's love is for all people. I try to reflect this belief in my interactions. Christianity is a life modeled after Jesus Christ who gave his life for others in order to bring life to the world through the gift of faith. God's love is for everyone.
Life is a gift.
Knowing that life is a gift from God is a message for every human being past, present, and future. The pro-life message is an honoring of this fact.
Being kind, empathetic and caring toward the suffering is important to all of our lives. This is what "pro-life" means: respecting life as given by God and living out His Will.
Kindness is of utmost importance, and being empathetic to those suffering is a great extension of this message.
Please reach out to me if I can pray for you in any way.
