A Little About Me
The Highlights

  • Got married, had a baby girl, launched a modeling career, divorced, moved to the city of love, San Francisco, in the 70’s……

Named after and reared by her maternal grandmother “Zalise,” she was inspired and encouraged to be extraordinary at everything she did every day. She was empowered to live a life of diverse experiences inclusive of participating in a local pageant that led to the Miss California/Miss USA pageant where Zalise was voted Miss Congeniality. She was provided the tools to learn about social graces and appropriate etiquette practices by attending Charm School. Through this process she learned to appreciate the value and beauty in others and became generous sharing her knowledge of loveliness. These experiences led to Zalise joining a modeling agency, where she is noted for launching one of the first diverse national ads for E&J Brandy.  After a thirteen-year career in fashion, Zalise entered Corporate America working with executives in a variety of business industries. She is most proud of her brilliant and lovely daughter, who is a product of what Zalise calls SuperSelf.
