    Keri, thank you for bringing us such an inspiring interview!
    As a mother of a 12 year-old girl, I believe it is so important that girls and young women hear the message that they can be and are, more than a pretty face and nice body. It is equally important that they understand that their physical beauty and femininity are not liabilities, they are wonderful assets, if a young lady as the right mindset. Jill is beautiful, obviously tough and smart. I wish her and you much continued success. Continue to dream it and BE it!

    I found this so inspirational and so dear to my heart. We’ve all heard people say follow your dreams but sadly not many do. Through your interviews we get to see people that not only dream but live their dream. Thank you for creating those eye opening moments to many of us and for dusting off and waking up our soul.
