Experience

Wonder Woman at Seattle Children’s Hospital

After attending last years Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, for the first time in costume (as Wonder Woman), it occurred to me that I should reach out to Seattle Children’s Hospital and see if I could set up a time to visit. It took several back and forth emails, but a date and time were […]

Labor #1 Compassion & Understanding

Labor #1  Compassion & Understanding – Make up and personally deliver 5 Blessing Bags for the less fortunate. Today I handed out the 5th Blessing Bag.

Dinner and Driving

This past weekend my husband and I were in Las Vegas to spend time with a group of friends. Through the travel agent of a friend, we got a pretty good rate for the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, located next to the Aria. I did not know this was a casino-free, nonsmoking hotel, but boy did […]
