Who is the most influential person in your life?
My grandmother, Pearl. We spent a lot of time together. We would go for walks in Whittier, California, picking flowers starting off the walk with one flower and coming home with a large bouquet. She was so selfless, full of love and very funny. Even the way she would prepare and cut up something as simple as an Eggo waffle for breakfast made you feel special.
Share a unique fact about yourself
I used to take care of Michael Jackson’s animals on his Neverland Ranch when I went to college at UC Santa Barbara. I helped take care of his snapping tortoise, two Galapagos tortoises, I bottle-fed his baby deer from Asia and gave sugar daddy lollipops to his orangutan, Brandy. She never met Michael Jackson, but his family days once a year emulated a living version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
