Where are you from and can you tell us one beautiful memory from your childhood?
I am from Wisconsin.  I spent most of my summers either on The Chain of Lakes near Waupaca or on Lake Superior in Washburn.  I loved climbing the sandstone boulders along the southern shore of Lake Superior.

I know you are not from Ithaca, what makes this place home to you now?
I have chosen to call Ithaca my home away from home.  The father of my child is a local Ithacan.  He has shown me many of the natural wonders of this gorgeous area.

Tell us a little bit about your beautiful son and motherhood?
My son, D’Nali Rae Barrett is a wonder to behold.  I absolutely love watching him develop.  I never get sick of watching him walk! Also I adore seeing him observe the world.  I hope for him to become a strong and creative boy and then man.  About motherhood; Motherhood is more challenging then I thought it would be.  Although I find it very rewarding when I hear my son laugh.

What attracted you to the Beautiful Ithaca project?
Being a Libra, I am always trying to surround myself with beauty.  Also, I feel strongly about the social issues that Alexis and his wife are bringing up with the anti-fracking movement and also with the importance of Planned Parenthood staying funded by the state.  And who wouldn’t want to say they posed for a calender!

What message do you hope to convey in your month?
I hope to convey that mothers can be sexy as well as active in the community while following her creative dreams.
