Among the things that she is most proud of was being chosen as an NFL Saints dancer in 1977 out of the 2,000 girls that applied. She likes a wide variety of music including Soul, Pop and Jazz. While she has never been an actor or a singer, she especially enjoys showing off her Elvis, Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe impersonations at parties.
