Learn how she balances a busy life without compromising her time with her husband, Ron, and their uber cute daughter, Easton.
Describe your years growing up. What were your biggest dreams as a young girl?
I was raised by a textbook hippy, so my childhood was about nature, meaning the outdoors and animals. Back then, my biggest dream was to work with animals, like being a vet or something of that nature. I was all about horses, dogs, and creatures.
You were born in Düsseldorf, but migrated to New York, then moved to Connecticut, then finally to Southern California. What was the transition like, moving around so much?
I really didn’t move around a lot. I was born in Germany and moved to NY when I was 1-year old. I attended high school and college in New York, so I had a very stable childhood in New York. However, I love being bicoastal.
