Dove Real Women, Real Beauty
A woman never stops evolving...imagine a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety. What beautiful evolution could take place...
Watch my Dove Real Beauty "Differences" Commercial for Walmart below! Twelve awesome women with compelling backgrounds were chosen. From a Dolphin trainer in Hawaii to a Jewelry Designer from the south side of Chicago, the mix of beauty was inspiring. I open & close the commercial. What an honor...and a huge statement. I feel as though I carry the torch for natural women...everywhere.
Dove's PR agency conducted a study of more than 3,000 women in 10 countries in order to learn about women's priorities and interests. When it reported that only 2 percent of the women intervieed considered themselves beautiful, the executives at Dove saw an opportunity. They moved beyond the bar of soap and began a conversation about beauty; it was truly an honor to be a part of that conversation.
Immediately following my commercial, I landed some awesome opportunities that would require me to relocate to the West Coast. This was one of the most difficult decisions I had to make considering I had a family and small children to care for. After much soul-searching about my priorities, I declined the invitation. Four years later I received a call from Harpo Studios, personally invited by the staff and Cindy Crawford to share my compelling story of family over fame with the studio audience!
"Being invited to Oprah's Life class with Cindy Crawford was an extremely self-affirming experience for me. I was reminded that with every gift there are choices we must make regarding how we use that gift. In turn, these choices are what define those who dream versus those who manifest."
