Three years of gymnastics contests guided her way to a scholarship at Furman University in South Carolina. She also spent one year at Auburn University, before receiving a grade in acting from Palm Beach Atlantic University.
Rising in summer stock in Alabama guided her to a meeting with Johnny Crawford who cast her in his night-time club act and gave her the ticket that took her to Los Angeles, where she took various day jobs as a cigarette girl, a typist at the American Cancer Society, and a waitress at a departure hotel while she executed stand-up comedy.
