International Speaker

While working as an actor in Hollywood for more than 10 years, Tina has talked with a myriad of celebrities about the differences in the roles they played and their behind-the-scenes lifestyles. She realized ‘these secrets’ must be revealed to the masses.
During the Hollywood Exposed show, Tina gives the inside scoop of how celebrities shelter their own children from any violent, obscene entertainment and how they preview media entering their homes.
This inspirational and motivational show challenges and changes the hearts of all who hear.  The facts presented help people establish a vision and purpose for their lives, and learn leadership and goal setting skills that leads to better family and peer relationships. She addresses ways to diminish drug and alcohol use, low self-esteem issues and thoughts about suicide. One of the results is that teens understand their identity is not based on the latest pop culture trends.

Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.

I've been there, too.

Tina went from baling hay and milking cows on a dairy farm in Wisconsin to working as an actress in Hollywood. At the age of 20, she drove 2,000 miles west and enrolled at California State University – Los Angeles to pursue a film and TV broadcasting degree and start her acting career. When she isn’t traveling and speaking, you will find her busy writing radio spots, blogging, cooking, camping, traveling, homeschooling her 4 munchkins or having a romantic date night with her best friend – husband Luke.

Tina's mission is to challenge the next generation to live counter-culturally to what the critics claim is "harmless entertainment."  Young adults will be who they are meant to be, rather than who they are told to be.
