first time I saw my husband Rick Haskell was at a health club
(of course), in Southern California. He was one of my students
in class and I remember being impressed by how coordinated he
was, not to mention I thought he was very handsome. He was and
still is in the restaurant business. It wasn't until we worked
together at a beautiful restaurant in New Port Beach, California,
that we began talking (actually more like flirting), and as soon
as we started dating, we knew we were meant for each other.
California, we moved to Phoenix, Arizona where we were in partnership
at a popular uptown Bar and Grill. I continued working on my degree
at Arizona State University.
more to my plate, I became not only a Professional NFL Arizona
Cardinals Cheerleader but also the first coach and choreographer
for the new ASU Basketball Dance team, the Devil's Angels.
married in Phoenix on November, 18th 1995 and because of my husbands
career opportunities in the restaurant business we moved to Columbus
Ohio, where our daughter was born. Then it was on to Philadelphia
and now we reside in Baltimore MD.
he is the Operating Partner at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and
Wine Bar, considered to be one of Baltimore's finest restaurants.
I'm so proud of my husband.
is a wonderful man. We've been together for 18 years and he is
the best thing that has ever happened to me! With his unwavering
love and support I feel like I can do anything and everything
I set out to accomplish.
daughter, Erica Angelina is truly an angel.
She has a heart of gold and is the sweetest daughter ever.
She wants to do
it all -- sing, dance, cheerlead and more. My husband says she
gets it from me (who knew?). Whatever she decides to do her father
and I will be right there to support her. Everyday I am reminded
of how much Erica has taught me about love and happiness. She's
my favorite person in the world -- she's my inspiration!
