Angie’s BIO

 

Angie was born with a spirit for adventure. She is happiest being outdoors, whether it’s hiking in the hills with friends, biking with family along coastal roads or walking through the surf at sunset.

A native of Kings Norton, a village outside of Birmingham, England, Angie was professionally trained as a nanny (a la Princess Di) before immigrating to the US where she took a position caring for the children of Tawny and Chuck Finley, the former all-star pitcher of the Los Angeles Angels.

For another family, Angie was a nanny to the beautiful Savana, who remains a lifelong friend. Once Savana was grown, Angie changed professions, becoming a Registered Nurse joining the medical staff of Hoag Hospital.

Along with founding the Rescue Heart Foundation, she makes annual trips to third world countries as part of a medical team, as well as assisting with health care professionals and veterans when disaster strikes, locally and globally. Volunteering her time as med-nurse at “Camp-del-Corazon,” for heart transplant kids and children with heart disease, on Catalina Island is something she looks forward too.  "Seeing the transition and impact heart camp has on these kids is incredible!"  She continues to collect and donate shoes for kids in Haiti (over 44,000 pairs) and sews blankets and patient gowns for babies and children chronically and critically ill recovering from heart surgery. In 2010, Angie biked from San Francisco to LA to raise funds and heart awareness for Rescue Heart and The American Heart Association.

Angie lives in Orange County with her husband Chris, a Medic for the film industry, their son Dylan, and a Golden Retriever named Roxy.
