A mature nurse recounts through songs and humor how she went from a life of privilege to a life full of anxiety and depression. A journey of how a difficult childhood coupled with wrong choices and unfortunate events led to a life of hopelessness and lack. How many years ago she became a registered nurse that instead of being a career, ended up being a sentence. She hears songs in her head and has always used music as a coping mechanism. Charley lived most of her life in a small town in Wisconsin. She came to LA with her two children 9 years ago. She graduated from IOWest Theater's one-year Improv program. She has done some acting and does stand up comedy. But alas, here she is in Hollywood and she still cannot be involved in the entertainment business because she still has to work full time as a nurse.

"I have so much in common with Charley! I, also, work in the medical field and revel in the freedom of performing on stage. I applaud her boldness to step up and share her story of irony cleverly peppered with lyrics and music to give a comedy relief through dark moments of her life. A live band added a personal touch. It was a family affair! Her son was accompanying her as pianist/bandleader in a 3 piece. The tunes Charley picked and re-written lyrics were perfect. My favorite was a rendition of 'Goldfinger'."
