President, Kristie Petty-Fields
Although I am not a comedian, I enjoy making people smile. I have a strange sense of humor that encourage people to feel good and look at life differently. My views are very different than most because I decided to look at the glass full to the brim even when it seems empty:-). I put God first in ALL I do, and I believe uplifting people to be there best.
