I’ve been involved in the M/s and leather communities for so long that I just did the math, and it scared me! It was 28 years ago that I was the first Ms. Atlanta Eagle.
I’ve been around, done some things, held some titles, been involved in some organizations, and I’m still here to tell my version of the truth; perception is everything.
In my day-to-day life, I’m a conversation and leadership coach working on my MS in psychology. When I have the time, I love fly fishing and exploring the forests, rivers, and streams in the beautiful mountains around Asheville, NC. When I can’t get outside, I play EQ2 or drive the household crazy playing my guitar and banjo.

Master Lala is also a certified hypnotist. She often harnesses the power of her words and voice (via therapeutic and erotic hypnosis) to train and empower those who serve her.
