Over the course of the next two decades would work as a performer with the USO, married a Veteran, and eventually work for Achilles International - an organization that supported wounded veterans and others with disabilities. 

In this episode she discusses watching soldiers deploy, her own husband's recovering from being wounded in Iraq, her amazing celebrity ties and escaping NYC as Covid 19 began to spread.

Today we are talking with Life Coach Kendra Harvey about what it means to truly be happy, and also owning our emotions, not running from them. Six weeks into her first marriage at 21-years-old, her husband expressed that he was going to commit suicide. She'd spend the next six years in the marriage, acting as his care giver before moving on in life and finding love again. Five kids later, she's been a working mom, stay-at-home mom and everything in between and offers great advice or those struggling during quarantine.
