Tell us about your #1 Amazon bestseller “How to Fly with a Baby: Your Mile-High Guide to Air Travel with an Infant,” book?
When my first son was born, we did a lot of traveling! Before he turned a year old, I had taken him to Santorini, Paris, even snow skiing in Chile. Naturally flying with an infant is very daunting for most parents and since I had a lot of experience, I wanted to share my tips with other parents out there. Within days of publishing the book, it became a #1 bestseller on Amazon.
What was the feeling of being one of the Amazon bestsellers?
It was amazing, I was just so thrilled that my book was able to help so many new parents! I now contribute to major magazines and tv shows as a family travel expert.
And about your TV career?
I am grateful that I am about to celebrate 15 years on Tv! Tv has been amazing – there’s nothing I love more than being able to connect with people! That’s what I love most about Tv!

Going, going, going! I really truly feel like I’m just now getting started!
How did you stay fit?
I’ve been a strict vegetarian for over 6 years. I also run and lift light weights to tone. I get asked about this a lot so last year I made a video for YouTube with my exact diet and daily workout routine.

How is a normal day in your life?
I wake up before 6am seven days per week – I’m a total “morning person”. I meditate right away for 11-minutes. I run 5 km during the work week, lift weights for 8 minutes in my bathroom, have breakfast and take my kids to school. I go to the stables, ride my horses, shower at my horse barn and go to the office for meetings with clients. Then race home, take the kids to piano or gymnastics and back home for dinner. Obviously, my day to day varies depending on whether or not I have a photo shoot or Tv filming, but a normal day looks something like that.
Do you support any charities?
Yes, I support thoroughbred reace horse rescue charity based in Lexington, Kentucky.
Idea of a perfect Sunday?
Waking up in my bed at my beach house in Santa Catalina, Panama. I just love it there!
