Actor Brooklyn Decker is making waves where she lives in Austin, and in Hollywood, these days. Along with starring in the sixth season that just premiered of her hit Netflix show, Grace & Frankie, she also loves being a busy mom, wife to tennis champ Andy Roddick, and finding time for what matters most in her life as she catches up with our own Lance Avery Morgan.

I love the Andy Roddick Foundation because…Austin doesn’t succeed until everyone in Austin succeeds, and Andy understands the responsibility of that. People are continually looking to Austin to find the what’s next and it’s exciting to think our city can set the example for what the program Out of School Time can look like, nation-wide, because of ARF.
The best career advice I’ve received is…Just marry him. Oh, did you say best or worst?

A classic designer I wish was still designing today is…Edith Head. She knew how to design for women and created some of the most iconic on-screen looks we know and love.
