Tell us about yourself.
I am the host of the Born To Talk Radio Show Podcast. I started in a local studio, that was both audio and visual in April, 2015. When that opportunity closed in February 2018, I opened a new door and continue my show strictly as an audio podcast. My show theme has always been; Conversations + Connections = Community What’s Your Story?
How did you get to be where you are today?
I have always been a talker. My husband of 38 years died suddenly in 2009. I was given sage advice from another widow. “Never say No to an invitation.” Little did I know an invitation would include being a broadcaster, 6 years later.
Have you ever been fired?
What are your real passions?
I tell people, I could have a conversation with the wind. I love to be in communication with people I know as well as people I don’t know. I also love nature, the birds, the bees the flowers and the trees. I like to take my camera along for the ride.
If you won the lottery, what would you do?
Support non-profits and organizations that are making local and global impacts in our world. I am a Rotarian.
What do you do to help others be their best?
It starts with a sincere and genuine interest followed by support. Everyone has it within them, I just want to be part of what is important to them. I meet remarkable people and I have the privilege of highlighting their passions each week.
How do you help yourself be the best you can be?
I began my Yoga practice last year. That has truly helped me focus and calm myself down, so that I can be my Best. Just learning how to breath has made a huge difference. I also remind myself to not be judgmental, starting with myself; another Yoga practice. The Best Ever You Journal is a very concise way to stay in focus and ask myself questions, that I may not have considered.
What do you like to do in your personal life?
I am a big sports fan. Dodger season ticket holder since 1986. WNBA Sparks season ticket holder since its first game in 1997. Finally, Clippers partial ticket holder since 2010. I loved to travel and look forward to doing that again when it is safe to do so. I also have been playing Mah Jonng each week with several friends for 15 years.
What do you hope to accomplish in the future?
Improve my brand and marketing to generate more listeners and future guests.
What is a book or two that you recommend?
(This is really funny, you know, I will always choose the TV over a book. That being said, I have really enjoyed Percolate and your journal!)
Please give us one or two shameless plugs.

What are some of your favorites? (books, websites, etc..)
Why do you do what you do?
I find all of my guests are very passionate about their lives. I like to hear about what makes them tick and why.
What are a few of your goals?
(Meet Mr. Wonderful…You CAN’T use that one. 😊)
I would like to reach more people. I’ve brought in a couple of friends to help manage that. AND, maintain a healthy balance of “me” time and work time. Also understand and practice the difference between Intensions the “what’s” and Goals the “why’s.”
What do the words "Best Ever You" mean to you?
I would like to think that everyone would want to be The Best Ever You. Sometimes we just don’t know how to approach that. The journal is a great way to reflect and put those thoughts in writing. I see that as a real value in self-love, I don’t think it’s possible to be the Best Ever You, if you don’t love yourself.
