She attended Rio Americano High School and took all kinds of lessons – from scuba diving to piano – and even did some “tearoom modeling” while in school. She enrolled into UCLA to become a veterinarian, but had to give up that career option as she could not stand the sight of blood.
After her graduation, she began modeling. She got an opportunity to feature in Playboy at the age of 18 and she did not let that chance slip through her hands. She played as a substitute model on the ‘Playboy After Dark’ show and later she was promoted by Hefner and she became the co-host of the show.
