About Me

I have been in and out of the fashion and beauty industries for many years: as a nail artist/technician, an aesthetician trainer, as well as, utilizing my graduate education in Marketing, PR, Meeting Planner and Graphic Arts. One of my favorite (and lucrative) jobs was as a party clown named “Sparkles”.  And yes, I can still twist an awesome balloon doggie!

But I would have to say my job-of-preference was and is as "Mom" to Lauren and Brandon, and “Rick’s Girl” to my best friend, soulmate, roommate, husband of 26+ years, Richard. 

Along with motherhood came the “part-time” volunteer positions: Girl Scout Leader, Football Mom, Carpool Manager, PTA Chair, Class Parent, etc. Oftentimes we put more blood, tears and heart into these positions than our real, paying jobs outside the home. 

When Richie passed away suddenly last year, my world turned upside-down and I had some time to evaluate my life in this emotional roller-coaster that is me.  

And now, as a brand new Fashion Director for Jewels By Park Lane, I mean BRANCH DIRECTOR (self-promoted), I hope to find some joy and Sparkle in my new role as Single Mom and sole provider.  Join me on this journey and "Go Frost Yourself" with the--beautiful, high-fashion, trendy, classic, attention-grabbing, compliment-getting jewelry, of Park Lane.
