Title: Physician Assistant, Business Owner, Mother, Wife

Married/Single: I have been married to the love of my life for 8 years. We met at Lake Pleasant 16 years ago and have been inseparable ever since. We love to travel, spend time with friends and family and live life to the fullest. 

Kids: I have 3 amazing boys that make my life fuller than I could have ever imagined.

City you live in: I live in Arcadia and can’t imagine living anywhere else. I have wonderful neighbors and love the fact that I can ride my bike to brunch.

A typical day in my life includes… 

A typical day for me starts with a cup of warm lemon water and a workout at 5AM. A quick shower then I’m off to wake up the kids for school. After school drop-off, I head to the office to see patients, answer emails and attend Zoom marketing meetings. Lunch usually consists of a salad and lean protein in between tasks and by 5PM I am heading home to have dinner with my family and start the evening bedtime routine.  I love to finish my day with a cup of warm tea, some lite reading and quiet time with my husband.

I was born…

I was born in Kentucky

My favorite thing about Arizona…

My favorite thing about Arizona is the sunsets. Out of nowhere vibrant reds, oranges, purples and blues will flood the sky and make you feel like you are living in a painting.

I’m listening to…

I’m listening to David Guetta’s remix of Dreams. Fleetwood Mac is one of my favorite bands and the new EDM remix adds such a fun twist.

My family…

My family loves to travel. The summer before the pandemic hit, we traveled around the circumference of the globe in 30 days. Traveling with young kids comes with its challenges but I truly believe it is the best education I can give them. 

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

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be Gabrielle Chanel. She created an empire out of nothing and against all odds with hard work, attention to detail and persistence. 

One thing I cannot live without…

One thing I cannot live without is sunscreen. I never leave my house during the day without an SPF 30 or higher on. Cloudy days, sunny days, even rainy days require a layer of protections from our environment. 

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

When I was younger, I wanted to be a fighter jet pilot. I come from a large military family of record-breaking pilots that love to push limits.  

I’m inspired by…

I’m inspired by my Grandmother. She is one of the toughest people I have ever known. She never complained a day in her life and was always up for an adventure. She left us at the young age of 94 enjoying daily happy hours and twice daily prayer. Grace, gratitude, and hard work.

The one person who motivates me is…

The one person who motivates me is my husband. When I am feeling overwhelmed, he is always there to lift me up, wipe away my tears and cheer me on. 

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

If I could change anything in the world, it would be getting people to take responsibility for their own actions and health. We need to teach people from a very young age how important habitual patterns are for your health. By introducing a few simple things such as proper hydration, morning exercise, a diet high in plants and on occasion, sugary foods as an occasional special treat. We can create a lifetime of wellness through our routines.

The perfect day would be…

The perfect day would be very similar to a day in my current life. A quiet morning meditation, an early morning workout, breakfast with my family, a workday at Vibrant, dinner with my family and an early bedtime with a warm cup of tea.  

My favorite escape…

My favorite escape is Vibrant Skin Bar. I designed the space with the help of the talented Jaimee Rose Interior team so that I could feel like I was on vacation while at work. I absolutely love my office, my “Vibe Tribe” work family brings me so much joy and I have the best patients in the business. Vibrant is where my creative juices flow and it’s a place where I can clear my mind and give my friends and family the best version of myself. 

My life…

My life is always full of adventure. Skiing, hiking, swimming, reading, cadaver labs, art and so much love.

I’m currently working on…

I’m currently working on creating a skin care line for Vibrant. I like my products to contain clean ingredients, be perfume-free and to be stocked full of scientifically proven ingredients. A simple routine that travels well and delivers results.

Always…

Always find a licensed provider to recommend a proper skin care routine and treatment plan. 

Never…

Never sleep with makeup on. Beauty sleep is key. 

Favorite Quote…

Favorite quote “Change your angle, change your life.”  

Biggest Dream…

My biggest dream is to inspire others to be healthy, choose kindness and stay humble. 

My Pet Peeve(s)…

My pet peeve is when people try to find the cheapest deal. Cheaper is not better and in my industry, can cost you a lot more in the long run when things go wrong.
