Cheerleader..homecoming queen.. attended Florida Bible College; received a gymnastic scholarship to Furman University, attended Auburn University one year, and ended up in Hollywood, CA via summer stock in Alabama, where she met Johnny Crawford (The Rifleman) who promptly put her in his night club act and sent her a one-way ticket to the show-biz capital.
Supporting herself as a cigarette girl, a typist at the American Cancer Society, and a waitress at a retirement hotel, she performed stand up comedy for 2 years until "The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson" put her act (which consisted of her doing a handstand while reciting poetry) on national TV. Following her 20 appearances with Johnny, she starred in many movies and TV shows, most notably six seasons on "Saturday Night Live". In l99l she re-united with her high school sweetheart, married him and moved to Florida, where he's a police helicopter pilot.
As a mother of two, homemaking is her priority now, but she's always ready to perform. She has a just released her second children's album UKULELE DITTIES FOR ITTY BITTY KIDDIES a follow up to her first album UKELELE LADY.
She's known for her handstands, poetry and original ukulele songs, but you might not have recognized her as the "Crying Lady" in the award-winning INFINITI tv commercial, or in the MCI commercial with another SNL alumnus, Phil Hartman.

Well, I'd feel like we didn't really connect if I didn't tell you about what I really feel is important. I am a genuine true blue believer...not in Scientology...not in the New Age movement...not in Mormonism...not in Buddism...not in Hinduism...not in Catholicism... but in Jesus Christ. I've studied all those other religions...and as a cynic, and a free spirit...I personally decided to put my faith in Jesus. I've read the Bible all the way through....and I believe it is the Truth...the Word of God. Read John 3:l6, Ephesians 2:8,9, Romans 3:23, and Romans 6:23, the entire book of John.....and tell me what you think. What do you think? Jesus claimed to be "the Lord"...He was either the "Lord", a liar, or a lunatic. Tell me what you think and why. After all, none of us has died and come back to tell....so we all have our faith in something. What is your faith in? I'm eager to listen and discuss.
