You really never know. But it’s clear, she loves music and she fully supports the art and artists however she can.
I had seen her at many events playing one of the many roles above, and I never quite knew what she did. I eventually found out she worked at numerous record labels as a promoter, and was right in the middle of the Hip Hop explosion in Los Angeles. When I decided to make this site, she was one of the people I was sure I wanted to feature. Sometimes it’s the people behind the scenes who really make things run. There are lots of celebrities and stars in LA, and she’s one of them, make no mistake.
