How We Picked the Finalists:

We solicited nominations through, plus we threw in our own candidates. After looking through hundreds of nominations, the D Magazine editors narrowed down the pool to 25 semi-finalists. We brought them in for face-to-face interviews, then narrowed down the list to the 20 finalists you see here.

Why She’s a Finalist: This lady has it going on: she’s married to an NFL player; she’s got a rock-star body despite having two kids; she’s smart; and she’s got a ring that could put your eye out. But listen to her talk for two minutes about how much joy her autistic son brings her, and you will see true beauty. The California native took a break from her law career to have children, but she’s looking to get back in the game now that the kids are a little older. In the meantime, she spends a lot of her time volunteering for organizations such as Garth Brooks’ Teammates for Kids Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, and various autism organizations. When she’s not devoting time to causes, she enjoys some local TV hostess duties and shops as Sussie’s, Nordstrom, and NorthPark—“the one-stop shop,” as she likes to call it.
