I’m that friend that you can take most anywhere! Seriously, just ask your friends.
I learned early on that life is what you make it. I give credit to me becoming a master daydreamer by 6th grade and being surrounded by synergies that support this.
Sitting Pretty With Selena is simply looking at life from an advantage and through my mind of imaginative possibilities and experiences, that I believe in.
Please, sit with my for a while.
I hope you enjoy your visit.
Thanks for stopping by.

You’ll see entertainment coverage as I will forever have a love for Hollywood and movies. I spent much of the 90s going to movie theaters on Sunday afternoons (ask my friends;), it brought me so much joy as I always saw it as larger than life. Movies make me dream.

In the midst of this ,my mind of imaginative possibilities landed me at the beloved Spa at The Beverly Hills Hotel as a nail technician and it was two years of bliss!
Although a proud native Texan, from Dallas and graduate of the University of North Texas (BS Journalism) UNT Eagles-Go GREEN- home for me is in Los Angeles with my husband and two sons and Grey and Midori (family cockatiels.)
I’ve held many roles and in each of them I’ve learned to:
