Velma hails from Williamsburg , VA, and is an Alumnus of Norfolk State University – “Behold the Green and the Gold!” NSU is where she honed her skills in “Ripping the Runway” b.k.a. runway modeling.


She’s done numerous shows there and shows in the DC metro area. She recently won the annual “Project Runway” award from N2DEEP Fashion Extravaganzaa, for best performance and overall attitude. As a humorous and very outgoing person she thought it would be interesting to entertain folks on the tizzzzzuuuuubbbbeee. So finding an audition posting for a model/comedic actress for a local TV show: The Tommy Taylor Show was just up her alley.


Now she’s one of the “FLY” Tommy Girls and aims to keep you amused with her quick banter, off the wall comments, and let’s not forget her dancing!!!! She loves to dance, especially to Reggae. BIG UP DEM MASSIVE! She can do it all: Percolate, Zip It Up, Dutty Whine, Butterfly (ok, sike that’s way old), Chicken Noodle Soup…as long as you have a soda on the side. She encourages you to stay tuned to The Tommy Taylor Show so you can get your laughs in!
