In April 1988, she founded Aspen Personnel Services, a human resources management and staffing company that was located in Takoma Park, Maryland. Within years of its birth, Aspen was being lauded for the rapidity of its growth and the quality of its services. Indeed, Armentha Cruise, or “Mike” as she is known to her friends, family and business colleagues, had accumulated awards such as: the 1995 BEST in Washington DC Tours presented to Aspen and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing from the Guild of Professional Tour Guides; the 1997 National Supplier of the Year Award from the National Council of Corporations;

Seize it and simply get rid of the fences that prevent love from entering and living an enchanted life that we sometimes think is impossible to have.”
EROS: EMMANUEL AND ME is scheduled to air on Punch Television Network from October 22, 2012 to October 28, 2012 at 8:30 pm PST. Please contact your local carriers for exact dates and times.
