Freeman, who seems to have no time for the indie posturing that denigrates commercial success, also uses her marketing skills and her psychology degree to craft her brand as a musical performer. From taking pictures of athletes for ad campaigns (many of which hang on the walls of the campus), Freeman learned that when you're represented on film, television, or the stage, you need to bring twice as much energy for it to come across. It's easy to see what she is talking about. Freeman, 5 feet 2 inches, with long blond hair, bright green eyes, and casual dress, is quite charismatic at work; but in makeup and hair extensions and tailored dress, on television, she looks like another person altogether. She looks like a Nashville star.
