Personal Quote:

I left my marriage only when I felt like I was going to die physically or die emotionally. It's just amazing what becomes your normal. One day you wake up with a knife at your throat. Another day you find your shoes torn up. But now we're in world where we are far more connected and involved in each other's lives because of social media. Now women who are abused can see they're not alone. See more »

Trivia:
