- My favorite part about playing Jen(on Claws) is that she's messy.
- Girls are being sexualized, there is this pressure to be beautiful & sexy, objectification starts so early.
- [on her husband] He was so kind and considerate and loving and let me be exactly the person that I wanted to be and saw me through a terrible battle.. 
- I didn’t have very big dreams.. I just felt that I want to say and do things 
- South was a harsh place to be a young woman trying to figure out where to fit in society 
- I learned how to have needs and desire and be OK with that and speak up, then I felt comfortable I had ground underneath my feet and I could use my voice to speak for others
