Tia Mowry rose to fame as a 90’s pop culture icon starring in “Sister Sister” alongside her twin Tamara. Since then, she has added author, business owner, chef, mother and wife to her long list of accomplishments. Most recently, Mowry launched Anser, a range of vitamins that she co-founded after having health and fertility issues. She wanted to create a line that connected with people from all backgrounds and encourage them to take charge of their health. After the success of the initial launch, Anser recently expanded into men’s and kid’s vitamins that cater to the whole family. She also currently stars on Netflix series “Family Reunion” and hosts her own YouTube Channel “Tia Mowry’s Quick Fix.”
