Mom to two college students and first-time grandmother to a 6-month-old baby girl, Bella. I am also a paralegal at a prestigious law firm in Buffalo, New York..
Interests and hobbies
I collect recipes because I love to cook and bake. I rarely go out to restaurants because I like to know what the ingredients are in dishes that I consume, and I find it therapeutic to tackle a difficult recipe. My family and friends don’t mind being the guinea pigs for my recipe attempts.
How I stay inspired
My friends inspire me. We look out for each other. We are there for each other. I am looking forward to growing old with them.
How I stay healthy
I enjoy eating a lot of fruits, vegetables and protein, plus I drink lots of water. Eating right makes me feel good about myself. I enjoy taking good care of myself and my skin.
What I feel passionate about
Besides traveling around the world, I have recently acquired a new hobby of tour (road) biking and I just love it. I am still new at it, but in the summertime I ride my tour bike 20–30 miles every day. Once a year, I do the 65-mile Can-Am tour
that takes me from Buffalo, New York, to Canada and then back to Buffalo. My ambition is to do a 100-mile bike tour.
My greatest achievement
My two adult children, Julia and Hector. As a single mother, it was sometimes hard to watch them make mistakes and help them endure growing pains. Seeing them now—beautiful, intelligent and making good decisions in their
lives—makes me so proud.
Something you’d never guess about me
I am a German citizen and came to the United States in my teens. I speak, read and write German, and I still keep in contact with my friends and family there and visit every few years.
How DHC products make me feel
In a word—beautiful. When I do my skincare routine and look in the mirror, I see a glow about myself. It makes me feel confident about my appearance.
