She was the emcee for John Duffey’s last live concert appearance at the John Harms Center for the Arts in Englewood, NJ, just three days before his untimely passing.

In addition, she is an actress and has been seen on stage throughout the northeast in musicals, comedies and dramas in dinner theaters, summer stock and off-off Broadway productions, as well as local community theater.
