Born in August 1974, Fisher grew up in Nassau County in Long Island, New York. She enjoyed a comfortable life with her parents Roseann and Elliot. And for Fisher’s 16th birthday, her parents presented her with a car. However, it wasn’t long before the teenager got into an accident and needed to get the vehicle repaired.
