|Daddy and I Feeding a Lamb|
|A New Pig in the Family|
Until junior high, I wanted to be: either a cowboy like Roy Rogers, or a veterinarian like my daddy. I loved being my father's assistant. I helped him with surgeries, treating sick animals, working cattle, and delivering baby animals, especially calves and puppies.
Both my parents were very creative and encouraged creativity in their children. On the long rides around the countryside to take care of animals, my father and I made up stories and songs.
I drew alot of pictures growing up, especially horses.

In high school, I discovered acting and spent the next 15 years always in a show.
I acted throughout high school and college, in school, community, and professional theatre productions.
