Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN11?

I think I was selected because I own my differences and strive to encourage others to as well. I’m a driven mom, wife and community supporter.

What is your strategy going into the house?

My strategy is to be unapologetically and authentically me. That means I’m a natural “wing mom”. I’ll be there for my housemates and keep them in line.

Being away from my husband, kids, dog and chinchilla.

How do you want people to remember you as a player on BBCAN?
