Brooke Burke-Charvet can do it all. Throughout her career, the model, actress, and TV personality has appeared on magazine covers, penned books, launched her own line of activewear, and started her own company (she's the co-CEO of Modern Mom). Dance fans will recognize Burke-Charvet as the Season 7 winner of ABC's Dancing with the Stars. She later went on to co-host eight seasons of the hit competition series.

The busy mom of four has recently been focusing on inspiring women (she recently teamed up on a health campaign with Poise) to live healthy and active lifestyles. Burke-Charvet chatted with Zimbio about her favorite Dancing with the Stars moments and what it really means to empower women.
