A former Dixie chick, I was transplanted into the super-huge Yeshivah town of Lakewood, New Jersey. I now have a beautiful baby boy, whom I'm crazy about. I'm currently a student of the Gemological Institute of America, where I'm pursuing a Graduate Gemology degree. My family remains in Katrina devastated New Orleans; where I was born and raised. Largely spared from major damage, my family moves on, rebuilding, forgiving, forgetting--coming to terms with the fact that sometimes bad things just happen to good people.
