Women In Hollywood: Warriors from Within 

August 5th, 2018

Heidi-Marie Ferren is a singer/actress, writer/spokesperson who has played Wonder Woman on HBO’s hit T.V. show “Bored to Death” and also served our Armed Forces across the globe as Miss USO. I caught up with her at Digital Hollywood where we talked about her latest project involving female driven content called, “Woman Enough,” and stories from her service as Miss USO. Heidi models how to show up in service yet also how to be brave and break the rules. The Women In Hollywood:Warriors from Within series is a collection of short and powerful profiles of women doing great work in Hollywood entertainment from interviews I did while broadcasting live from the Digital Hollywood event in May 2018.
