Born: August 20, 1956 in Rochelle, Illinois, USA

I was very shy, but was desperate to meet boys. So my sister told me to be a cheerleader. I didn’t make cheerleading squad, so I thought, “Why not try out for a play?” As soon as I did I found out I absolutely loved it. I could cry and scream and laugh, but in a controlled environment.
