She was married to her husband of 25 years, whom she met on an airplane just a year out of college before moving to Los Angeles, where they raised their two sons, Armie and Viktor. They also lived in the Cayman Islands for four years and started a Christian school on the island, Grace Christian Academy. She now has two grandchildren, harper and ford.
During her marriage, Dru renovated 27 homes all over Los Angeles and was secretary of the Armand Hammer Foundation. She volunteered for 10 years at Los Angeles Dream Center working with troubled women, addicts and human trafficked victims.

Dru currently resides in Palm Beach and has now renovated over 40 properties. She started a foundation 10 years ago, hammeredheart.org, providing help to women. Children, and single parents through ministries and churches. Lately, Dru has started a new brand, druville.com, a homeware and clothing line, where a portion of all proceeds are donated, through her foundation.
