kristy Kristy Busack, age 35 years, high school counselor, mother of two When I think about what Team Film means to me, I immediately think three things: support, motivation and serious fun.

The serious fun is filled with tons of laughter, dancing, acting silly, new adventures and the VERY best excuse to take time for you! 2 things I can’t stand: “I can’t” attitudes and fakeness. Just be real, and be you. What I want you to get out of Team Film: Hands down, Team Film makes me a better me.
