First time we met at work, she told me it was ok to smile. That was over 6 years ago. I’ve watched her grow & thrive as a mom, host, producer, wife, student & now whatever she wants to do next.

My guardian angel. My mentor… My best friend. You’ve believed in me since day one & I would not where I am, or who I am, without having you by my side.

Not only is @MadisonRayne great inside the ring, she is one of the most creative and giving people I’ve ever worked with.
