Four women and five children die every day in the U.S. due to domestic violence. Read President Barack Obama's Presidential Proclamation announcing his commitment to reducing the prevalence of domestic violence in our country.

My interview on Channel 15 ABC News this morning!

I was interviewed yesterday by Channel 15 (ABC15.com), sharing my story and spreading awareness of domestic violence. Clips from my interview aired on TV twice this morning - during the Channel 15 News at both 5:00 and 6:00 am!

I'm thrilled for the exposure and the opportunity to promote the AZ Coalition Against Domestic Violence Gala this evening!! It will be an extraordinary event as well as a fabulous chance to spread awareness.

Today marks my "coming out" in the media with my domestic violence story. One reporter who interviewed me previously asked what the benefits are of "coming out." I would have to say that the main benefit is spreading my message that the horrors of abuse/domestic violence can seep into the life of any woman of any walk of life. It doesn't matter your background or socioeconomic status or education level, etc. It can happen to you. All it takes is getting involved with just the right guy....


  1. Hi Kristin,

    I saw your interview this morning on channel 15, you looked fabulous. Domestic Violence is an important issue and cause and I applaud your efforts in helping raise awareness by sharing your personal story to help empower other women to take action. Great job! Tina B.

  2. Thanks so much, Tina! You're the greatest!! I've so appreciated your friendship and support - always.

  3. Hi Kristin,

    I came across your blog while looking for abuse resources. After reading your blog it seems that you feel you've been through a lot. What happened in your relationship? Was your abuse verbal? physical? I've experienced the worst kind of abuse. I saw in your older posts that your husband called you inappropriate names. That must had been really hard. What happened in February? Were you living together at that time, or seperated? Did the police file charges against him?

    Thank you for responding.

  4. Hi there,

    Thanks for your comment! I'm so sorry that you've also experienced awful abuse. There's nothing more degrading or heartbreaking.

    I'm happy to let you know more details about my story. Feel free to email me at kristinzucconi@gmail.com any time. I'm also happy to help you find the resources you need.

    Warmest regards,
