Sharon's first Playboy Promotions photo.

Sharon was a Bunny in the Chicago Playboy Club between 1970 and 1976. She was discovered during a Bunny Hunt in Houston, Texas. John Dante, Playboy Clubs' top executive, personally selected her from among the hundreds of applicants. The same Bunny Hunt also uncovered Karen Christy in Dallas, who later became Hugh Hefner's girlfriend in Chicago.

Throughout her cottontail career Sharon lived at Hugh Hefner's Chicago Mansion. She became famous to the Chicago Keyholders as the charming Door Bunny with the cute Southern accent. Sharon also worked in most of the Chicago Club Rooms, became a Jockey Bunny, appeared at many Bunny promotions and assisted John Dante during nationwide Bunny Hunts to find new cottontails. Sharon, in alliance with Playboy Executive Victor Lownes, helped organise the "Bunny Lib" demonstration which involved sending Hugh Hefner a letter demanding the revoking of the famous "no dating" rule.

Hugh Hefner especially chose Sharon to be a Jet Bunny, a high-flying hare in the air on board his mile-high hutch, the Big Bunny DC-9 Jet. Very few Bunnies were ever chosen to join the elite ranks of the Jet Bunnies. Sharon still has her complete Jet Bunny Uniform.

The Jet Bunnies represented the crème de la crème of the cottontail creed. Sharon flew on many of the Jet Bunny flights, including tours with Elvis and Sonny and Cher.

After leaving Playboy Sharon married, divorced, re-married and raised two beautiful children. She became a champion Doberman breeder.

Sharon lives in New Orleans and is currently writing her autobiography, Bunny Dreams, which will be published in 2003, the year of Playboy's 50th Anniversary. More details will become available towards the publication date.
