A popular burlesque dancer in the 1940s through 1950s, Winnie was a multi-talented woman. She was one of the top paid stars, and unlike many other dancers, she invested her money. Including owning stock, and serving as vice president of Famous Records (music LPs) in New Jersey. Winnie promoted the company, and its artists, during radio interviews for burlesque shows. She also owned a music publishing business. Winnie was not all work though; she enjoyed playing golf and was a talented watercolor artist. She married Harry Eisen, an architect, on 16 May 1951 and they resided in New York City.
