3: - My sister was born on August 10th 1999. This changed my life completely. I was no longer the only child and center of attention. At first i LOVED being the older sister, but as the years went on and she began to talk, i changed my mind. _ Right after the birth of my sister was the first day of kindergarten. This was significant because it was the start of all my education. _Because of the birth of my sister Courtney, we had to move to a new house because the one we were currently living in did not have enough rooms in it for 4 people. This changed my life because we moved to a completely different city, which eventually meant a new school as you will read later. | 0-10

I needed to get good grades in order to get into college. ~ Only 6 short years later, I was graduating Calabasas High School. All my hard work had paid off, and i was college bound. At this point, I knew that my life was about to change. I would be moving out and starting a life for myself. ~ On August 12th 2012, a few days before my 18th birthday, i moved to Lawrence, Kansas. I was attending The University of Kansas as a freshman, double majoring in Communications through film and media studies and special effects theatrical and media makeup. This changed my life because not only was I living in another state far away from my family, I was starting my career path.

Nine short months later i gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. This through my life for a turn because now i not only had myself to take care of, but my child as well. ~ A few years after taking over W. M. Creations, i won my first award of many to come. This put my name out there in the "movie makeup world" which allowed me to gain even more clients than I already had.

11: ~During this time, my daughter starts elementary school at Chaparral. This changes even more for me because now it is time to start teaching her about the importance of education and I have to start thinking about the costs of college. (although it may be very far away) ~ With Ryan starting school, I was able to become very involved there. I eventually got elected President of the PFC. This meant I would have even more on my plate, but I knew i could do it. ~ Because Ryan was growing up and starting elementary school, we had to move closer to the school. We bought our first house in Hidden Hills.
12: ~ As the years went on i earned more and more awards. For example, earning three Academy Awards, two Emmy Awards and four Saturn Awards, among other accolades. This not only validated my success, but allowed me to start thinking maybe my time is almost up. ~ During this time, I watched Ryan graduate Calabasas High School, and sent her off to KU as my legacy. This was one of the hardest parts of my life. I now understand how my mother felt when i went off, it is scary! ~ Because of the extended number of awards I received I felt deserving of a new car. So, I bought my first Range Rover. This was important to me because all of my life I have dreamed of driving this car, and now I am lucky enough to have one of my own. | 51-60 genetivity vs. stagnation

15: ~ After Ryan graduated college she met the love of her life and a few short years after that, they conceived their first son. This meant I was a grandma now! ~ At this point in time, after lots of thinking, I decided I had left my mark on special effects makeup and now it was time to hand it over to someone else and retire. This was a HUGE step in my life because now I had time to enjoy my new baby grandson and travel the world like i had always dreamed.
16: ~ A few years passed after my retirement when my husband decided he was also going to retire. This meant neither of us would be working anymore. Both of us retiring is a sign that I have done all that I can and now it is time to just sit back and watch how my family and company play out. I was very content with this idea though. ~ After both of us retiring, we decided to pick up and move to Palm Desert. I had always wanted to live here but knew it would be illogical to try and raise a family out in the middle of nowhere. So, my husband and I currently reside in our small house on the first hole of the golf course reminiscing about all of our life accomplishments and watching our daughter start a family of her own to keep on with our legacy.
