How did you get to be where you are today? Tenacity, talent, working smart (and working hard), resiliency, faith, focus and staying on purpose.
Have you ever been fired? Yes, and it sucked.
What are your real passions? Performing (acting, singing, dancing), creating projects of value, my women's non-profit, my production company, my friends, my family, my sweetheart and being silly!
If you won the lotto what would you do? Continue to create what I am already creating but also be able to travel more often for fun.
What do you hope to accomplish in the future? I hope to create films of value. I hope that my women's non-profit provides an example of women supporting one another. I hope that I am able to continue to perform in roles that are a stretch for me as an artist, that entertain and also to be part of stories worth sharing. Most importantly I hope to have a beautiful marriage and family.
What do you like to do in your personal life? Fulfill my passions, fine dining, drinking java (even though it is bad for me) and being a chatterbox, spend time with my sweetheart, travel and go on L.A.W with my girlfriends (long ass walks)!
📷Please give us one or two shameless plugs. I am currently working on the new hit show Devious Maids created by mastermind Marc Cherry (who created Desperate Housewives). My feature One Moment Please is in production and will be hitting the festival circuit in 2014. I starred in and Co-Executive Produced this feature film. Lastly, I just shot an episode of Revenge on ABC and We Are Men on CBS.What do you do to help stay your best ever? I meditate and pray daily. I eat as clean and healthy as possible. I workout everyday. I read a lot. I accept that I am a work in progress so I am always open to learning and growing.

How do you help other people be their best? I think the only way to truly "help others" is to be the best example you can possibly be. I also donate to various charities and volunteer when I have time. Lastly I try my best to be kind and open to everyone I encounter.
What is your favorite book to recommend to someone else to read. Right now I really love The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg
Tell us a secret ;) I have a weird habit of misplacing my cups around my house and having to use new ones. I'm trying to use the same blue cup to break this silly habit!
What's new with you? This week we start production for One Moment Please, I have several pre-Emmy parties to attend, I have a VP meeting for TNH and I need to get ahead on my long to-do list!
What do the words "Best Ever You" mean to you? "Best Ever You" means that everyone is perfectly imperfect and (hopefully) striving to not only be their best but more importantly to be a beneficial presence on this planet.
