Brief Bio/Introduction/About you:
I was born in Orange County, and raised in Chicago. I have now been back in Southern California for the last four years. My family and friends brought me back to visit but the weather and opportunity convinced me to stay. I am a blessed mother to a handsome young man; Caleb Michael, a devoted Matchmaker and thriving student. I grew up quickly and gathered life experience at a young age; many refer to me as an old soul. I am an empathetic and understanding person, my compassion for my clients and their happiness compels me to be a successful matchmaker.
