A day in my life is like…

running a marathon at the edge of the Grand Canyon – it’s beautiful, inspiring, exhilarating, and I just hope I survive!

I was born…

in a small town in West Texas.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is monsoon season. I love the drama of it.

I’m listening to…

my daughter sing “Call You Mine” by The Chainsmokers.

My family…

is basically perfect. I definitely lucked out in that department.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Bono.

One thing I cannot live without…

Diet Coke or red wine. It’s a serious toss-up.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an estate attorney. Growing up in West Texas, the idea that you’d have to sell the farm to pay the taxes always resonated with me.

I’m inspired by…

my grandparents. They have been incredibly successful growing their land and cattle business while many farms and ranches have been unable to survive in today’s modern, technology-driven world.

The one person who motivates me is…

my husband. He’s the very best life partner and professional support system you can ask for.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

the ending of Lost; I still haven’t gotten over it.

The perfect day would be…

at the Willow Stream Spa at the Fairmont Princess.

My first job was…

working in the children’s department at Montgomery Ward.

My favorite escape…

is the beach. Especially if my dogs are with me.

My life…

is full of laughter; my children are constantly ranking who in the family is the funniest.

I’m currently working on…

getting my current client’s estate plans finished before the end of the year.

Always…

be kind.

Never…

rely upon someone else for your own success or self-worth.

Favorite Quote…

“You can always give something, even if it is only kindness.” Anne Frank

Biggest Dream…

is to host Saturday Night Live.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

my family’s inability to use a laundry hamper.
