As I approach 40 -- the new 20s -- when life begins -- so 'they' say -- my career, health, finances, and vision have all changed dramatically.
I have been proudly educating and serving the beauty, entertainment and medical industries since 1988 and working actively in the worlds of acting and modeling and in the stunt work business. I’ve also worked as a part-time personal fitness and nutrition guru and as a hair and makeup advocate in New York, Los Angeles and New Mexico. Well, this was all going to shift.
At the age of 28, my agent suggested I have cosmetic surgery to keep my appearance at its peak and to compete with others working in entertainment because of being in the limelight and in front of the camera.
At 12 percent body fat that I earned (thank you very much) through teaching spinning and pilates and training six days a week, I was at my best financially and physically, or at least so I thought.
After numerous bumped movie roles and the constant pressure and rejection in the entertainment and modeling industry, I decided to take my agent’s and photographer’s advice and have cosmetic surgery.
Little did I know that at only 30, my entire life would completely take a downward turn.
I'm here now after years of hard painful work, numerous and ongoing surgeries, and more which lie ahead. Now, I’d like to tell my own personal story, share my insight and reach out to others who want help.
Additionally, everyone is dying for a deep sense of companionship and to feel really good about themselves. When you find someone who makes you feel good about yourself, you want to be around that person all the time. I have found that person to share my journey and now I can help others with my insight and with hair skin and wellness education.
Beauty lies within all of us and the way we express ourselves on the outside will only heighten or inner beauty.
