“If you are a dreamer, come in” ― Shel Silverstein
As a Colorado native, I can’t imagine living anywhere else (except Mexico. I would totally live in Mexico on an all-inclusive resort, but that is it). I received my B.S.W from Metropolitan State University (formally Metropolitan State College of Denver) in 2005. Immediately after graduation I began working for a local non-profit, where I remained for 10 years. In 2012, I was part of the first graduating class at Metropolitan State University’s Masters of Social Work program. It was an amazing opportunity to be part of the program’s inaugural year.
In 2008, I was approached by Dana with a “unique” business idea. After a few glasses of wine, she presented the business plan and asked if I would join her. I am not sure if it was the wine or my love of award and reality shows, or the phone updates from TMZ or my frequent online stalking of celebrities that made me say yes, but I am thankful I did. There is nothing more exciting than making someone feel special when they are on the red carpet.
Being an up-and-coming paparazzo is only a part of my life. When I am not wrangling in twin toddlers, or hearing all the gossip from the local middle school by my teen daughter, you can generally find me pretending to be Martha Stewart and creating some ridiculous project I found on Pintrest. Not kidding my house is exploding with tulle, burlap, vinyl and paper flowers. My husband has a love/hate relationship with my Pintrest obsession. While one minute he gets to sample some new delicious meal the next he is cutting pallets in half so I can decorate my bathroom (true story). I am also pretty obsessed with social media and could be considered “one of those moms” who posts way too many photos of her kids. The adventures of the Ratliff house are well documented, check out my Facebook page (after liking Paparazzi)!
Which Celebrity Would I Love To See On The Red Carpet?
I have sick and twisted love for Kid Rock. I just want to see the magical train wreck he would be on the red carpet and then hit up the Waffle House with him after. Like I said, sick and twisted.
