Sonja Warfield shares her journey of growing up in Cleveland, Ohio and how she found her way from assistant to eventually writing for the Emmy award-winning show, Will & Grace, and now is a Writer & Executive Producer on HBO's hit show, The Gilded Age, created by Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey). On a personal note, she is daughter to her NFL Hall of Fame father, Paul Warfield, and mother to her creative photographer son who is now a college student. With her comedic flare, she also authored her book called "Get Your Butt Off My Couch (and Your Hand Out of My Wallet)", where she gives hilarious and practical tips and insights on marriage and divorce.
What you will love about Sonja is how honest she is about her journey, sharing the ups and downs, the twists and turns of how she forged her path into writing, motherhood and what she got to learn along the way about resilience, speaking up, standing in faith, and the art of surrender while still not giving up on her dream.
