Lindsay Wagner makes little distinction between her life as an actress, advocate, mother, humanitarian or author.   What unites these various parts is a commitment through her work and her personal life to advancing human potential.  Early in her career this commitment was evident in her Emmy Award winning portrayal of “The Bionic Woman”.  Her use of media as a way to communicate ideas to help people in their personal process is demonstrated in so many of her films.
