I was born and raised in Elko, NV and after graduating high school I moved to Provo, UT.  I attended Brigham Young University on a volleyball scholarship where I completed an undergraduate degree in Zoology.  I was married and have 3 wonderful children who are very supportive of me.

I have been a successful small business owner since June 2006. I own and operate multiple locations of Fantasia Pet Resort which provides boarding, grooming, and daycare for dogs throughout Reno and the surrounding areas.  Prior to owning my own business, I worked 10 years for UPS in Human Resources, Industrial Engineering, and as a Supervisor over the drivers.

I started drag in 2001 as a closet ball contestant and since then have been an active member of the Silver Dollar Court in Reno, NV.  I reigned as Ms. Gay Reno, Ms. Reno Gay Pride and as Mr. Gay Reno over the years of my “baby drag.”  As, I continued to get more and more involved I became ICPR to the 35th Reign of the Silver Dollar Court.

I have served and currently serve as Board President of the Silver Dollar Court.  I was honored to be Empress 40 which has been one of the best experiences within the International Court System.  I was fortunate enough to be the most traveled Empress of the Silver Dollar Court making friends from all walks of life.  Being a member of the Silver Dollar Court has brought great reward knowing we have given away over 2 million dollars to charity. Even though we have been a small Court, we have worked hard for our Community.

I was honored from Queen Mother Nicole the Great with Empress of the Decade, named a Granddaughter of the Queen Mother, and given the Jose I Honor. I am now honored to serve as Heir Apparent to Queen Mother Nicole the Great.
