Education and early career[edit]

Aloe was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as the youngest of three girls. She moved to Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California, where she participated with other students on a music magazine titled "Rock", distributed in 35 countries. Her interest in journalism led her to work as an entertainment reporter for Us Weekly and Entertainment Weekly Radio.

Aloe moved to New York and transitioned into producing talk shows, such as CBS's Geraldo. She later moved back to the west coast where she produced a newsmagazine show at Paramount television called Hard Copy. She went on to produce reality TV shows and specials such as The Susan Powter Show (Multimedia Inc), Caught in the Act (NBC/Dick Clark Productions) and Case Closed (USA Network).

Aloe's first executive producer credit was for the Columbia TriStar television movie The Princess and the Marine. She followed up with another TV executive producer credit on Downtown: A Street Tale. This led to producing feature length films such as When a Man Falls in the Forest, Numb, Battle in Seattle, Tortured, and While She Was Out. Aloe also participates with Regent Releasing in managing a $50 million P&A fund.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Aloe participates in charities that support children, women, and animals. She is an active supporting member of The Pasadena Humane Society, Pit Bull Rescue, and Women in Film.
