|OCCUPATION: Stay-at-home mom.
Even though I used to work for the CIA, I've logged more
hours being a new mom than any previous job!
UPDATE: My life changed dramatically—and for the
better—after having my daughter. My pregnancy wasn't
without some hardships, however. I came down with vestibular
neuritis, which causes vertigo. My husband is my hero. Both
he and my parents took great care of me during this time.
INTERESTS AND HOBBIES: I'm an avid reader and love
to travel. My husband and I hope to visit Europe with my
brother-in-law when he returns from Iraq.
PROFESSION I WOULD LIKE TO TRY:
I have always wanted to write a novel, and I actually began
one last fall!
NEW FAVORITE DHC PRODUCTS: After using Washing Powder,
I noticed dramatic results right away. My skin felt extra-soft
the whole day. Pure Soap keeps my skin hydrated and smooth,
not tight or dry, and helps keep blemishes under control.
OCCUPATION: Veterinarian. There is nothing
like doing the work you dreamed of as a child.
UPDATE: As a senior medical director, I oversee
87 veterinary hospitals and about 150 doctors.
My husband and I also have a new puppy, Jak.
Our 19-year-old paraplegic poodle, Beanie, had
to teach the pup a few lessons on dog etiquette!
HOBBIES: I run 5 miles daily. It keeps me
sane. I also love to read, and I enjoy jazz
music, outdoor concerts, and travel.
AFTER APPEARING IN THE CATALOG: I heard from
a woman who told me about her granddaughter,
India, who wants to be a veterinarian but didn't
have a role model—she'd never heard
of a black female vet! I talked to India and
arranged for her to tour an animal hospital.
I receive photos, cards, and updates and hope
to one day meet her.
NEW FAVORITE DHC PRODUCTS:
I use Q10
Moist Color Base in Yellow. It helps my
makeup go on smoother and last longer. I love
OCCUPATION: Fitness instructor, flight attendant.
UPDATE: I'm having
a great time volunteering as a coach for a running
program that trains 9- through 12-year-old girls to
run a 5K. I love teaching them how strong they are
and seeing the pride that comes from discovering what
they can do. I also started working part time as a
flight attendant for a private charter airline. All
four of my kids are great, and my husband is still
the most patient man on the planet.
I FEEL PASSIONATE ABOUT: Staying healthy. Losing
130 pounds changed my life. I hope to give something
back and inspire people to get healthy and share the
gift that I feel I've been given.
NEW FAVORITE DHC PRODUCT:
Bath Hair Treatment Oil—I love it.
It's not heavy at all. It gives my hair smoothness
and shine and tames the fly-aways and frizz.
MOTTO: Life is short—buy
OCCUPATION: I have a breast
cancer awareness website, Pink Ribbon Gifts
AFTER APPEARING IN THE CATALOG: Many DHC customers
and breast cancer survivors shared their stories
with me and have become my customers and also
my friends. Also after appearing in the catalog,
I was contacted to model for a national clothing
line. That evolved into a modeling career.
AS A 10-YEAR BREAST CANCER
SURVIVOR I want to help those in my community
who are affected get the best care. I donate
all the money raised from my website and 50
percent of my modeling fees to local breast
FAVORITE DHC PRODUCT:
I love the line of Q10 products, but my all-time
favorite is still Deep
HOW I STAY HEALTHY: I eat well, exercise often,
and see life as a great adventure that I have
only just begun.
UPDATE: I started a new job at
a nonprofit organization for youth education and welfare.
We¹ve been working on a program called Six Billion
Paths to Peace. We believe that peace in the world
starts from the smallest and simplest everyday action
we can do for others. I also recently bought a house
in Sausalito, California, which is where I¹ve
always wanted to live.
GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT: Having the courage to move
here from Japan when I was just out of high school.
I could barely speak any English, yet I came here
on my own with only a few hundred dollars and one
NEW FAVORITE DHC PRODUCT:
Soy Milk Essence keeps my skin hydrated
all night long.
REAL-LIFE HEROES: My grandparents were incredibly
kind and compassionate people who always opened
their home to people in need.
