I’ve been in the investigations/security industry my entire career, but one day I realized I wanted to help more than one organization at a time. Thus, working for just one company wasn’t enough. Seva 6 Security Consulting was created out of a desire to help many and recognition that individuals and organizations need to understand safety and security differently. Read more>>

I grew up in a wonderfully supportive family of accountants and educators. I was taught from an early age to: “Get a good education, get a good job, hold onto it for 40 years, save as much money as you can and, if you’re lucky, you’ll get to retire and do whatever you want. Read more>>

My interest in interior design goes as far back as I can remember.

After a 20-year career as an attorney and five years as a novelist, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at age 50. PD is a progressive, debilitating neurological disease that has no cure.

I have loved comedy since I was a little girl. Actors like Jim Carrey and Jack Black inspired me to become an actress myself.
