When did you move here and why?
I grew up in Alabama and came to San Diego twenty-some years ago via Atlanta, Georgia and New York.

When I was a little girl in the cotton fields I saw a plane flying overhead… it was flying west and I said someday I’m flying to California… and here I am. I never looked back. I found diamonds here.
