Occupation: Showhost at Jewelry Television JTV
What is your dance experience? I was a cheerleader five million years ago and coached cheer dance for many years after high school. However, the extent of my dancing now is jumping around with my nine-year-old daughter and dancing and singing off-key into a hairbrush as a microphone.
Why are you doing this event? My son, now 18, was very ill when he was a toddler and was cared for so well at Children's Hospital. The hospital also cared for my daughter when she suffered a total break to both bones in her arm a year ago and required surgery and extensive treatment. I cannot begin to express my gratitude to the entire staff for their expertise and their immense kindness.
Why should people vote for you? I do this purely out of sincere gratitude for the blessings my children and I have received during our experiences at Children's Hospital. I am a celebrity, but I am a mother first and can speak firsthand to the importance of the care and professionalism provided by Children's Hospital. I live in a very rural area of East Tennessee that fully depends on Children's Hospital for the best care. I would love to represent my area and other smaller communities that are served by the hospital.
Anything else you would like to add? To potential charitable voters I would like to say please cast your votes for whomever you choose. I would certainly be excited to win, but more excited to see this year's event be the most successful ever. In giving to Children's Hospital we all receive a blessing!
