Love sharing how powerful it can be to state and clarify your vision... When ringing phones were attached permanently to the wall, most people would walk, even run over, to answer them. But Wendy Braun’s mother always delighted in sharing how her young daughter, in full performance mode, would dance across the kitchen to answer. “For as long as I can remember my passion for performing has been part of who I am,” says Braun who is in her 4th season playing Kathy on the Netflix hit comedy, Atypical. Over and over, performing nurtured Braun, providing what she needed. At 13 when she was 5’10” and feeling like a fish out of water, she was cast as The Scarecrow in The Wiz. ...

Thank you to Variety for featuring me (alongside Arianna Huffington) in their ongoing series…. I’ve come to realize that there’s no “right” way to get through a global pandemic, and that doing anything you can to help serve others (no matter how big or small) has a ripple effect way beyond you.

So I’m thankful that in creating my guided meditation audio “Easing Anxiety + Improving Well=Being” not only helped other actors, but has also reached frontline nurses, homeschooling parents, and even children. I’m ...
