Raised in Abington, PA, she was a champion diver and swim coach at the Valley Club, later developing a youth swimming program at a new YMCA in Hatboro, PA. She was selected as a high school exchange student spending a summer in Denmark. After high school, she found use riding her Kawasaki motorcycle to develop her first career as a newspaper photographer for the Daily Intelligencer.
