If you could live in any TV home, what would it be and why?
The Avenger’s Headquaters. The best in training and fun…. plus it flies.
What is the most courageous thing you’ve ever done and why?
Becoming a mom. Being a mom challenges you in every single way. Everyday I must step out of some comfort zone in order to give my girls what the need. Also, you can’t quit being a mom, so even when things get tough, you learn to adapt. Raising kids to be genuine, caring adults is truly a test of courage and sacrifice, but also the most fulfilling thing I have ever done in my life.
What’s the one thing you’d tell your thirteen-year-old self?
It’s ok to be a badass, to stand up for what you believe in, and to be strong.
What’s something you never leave home without?
No matter what kind of day I have had or what mindset I may be in, I never leave home without compassion for others.
What’s one thing you’re certain of?
As humans, We are all more alike than we are different. We celebrate the difference and the things that make us unique, and that is good, but we must remember not to focus on just those things. If we remember to look for the things we have in common, it will bring us together and unite us , rather than tear us a part.
