ACCOMPLISHMENTS
“I’m very proud personally of being an entrepreneur. It runs in my family! My great grandfather John H Cole started our family roofing company in 1919.  My Grandfather, Uncle, Mom, and Cousins run the ship and honor a long, proud history of excellent work in Baltimore.  My business is much smaller, but I am proud to say we doubled our business last year and continue to drive hundreds of thousands of dollars of business to amazing contractors in the Los Angeles area.”

OFF THE CLOCK
Hobbies: Gardening, flea markets
Favorite foods: “The best food in the world, in my opinion, would encompass truffles, French fries, and a great filet. These things all taste better with a good wheat beer to wash them down!”

SECRET LIFE
“I was one of the first female mascots in the NFL. When the Baltimore Ravens team went looking for a character to pump up the crowd, I was cast as one of three giant, fuzzy Ravens named, aptly, Edgar, Allen and Poe.  ‘Hatching’ on the 50-yard line from purple glittery eggs to Steppenwolf’s ‘Born To Be Wild’ is forever etched in my memory.”
