Between growing up as a Tom-boy/Military Brat who played sports, and then later becoming a model/actress, I’ve had my fair share of coaches. I am excited to say, I now have a personal/professional coach who truly “Gets me!”
I’ve been fortunate in my life and currently have several fantastic projects that I am juggling. Thanks to Duane’s support, I have a clear plan that I’m implementing, which will allow me to achieve my dreams.
I don’t know how he does it…not sure I can really explain it. I just know I’m happy he’s in “my orbit” now…my future looks bright, and luckily I’ve got a Fabulous pair of Ray-ban’s!
