I was born…
in Toronto, Canada.  Dual citizen!
My favorite thing about Arizona…
is monsoon season.  I love a good storm.
I’m listening to…
I switch off between Kaskade and Sinatra.  But it’s safe to say that I’m listening to house 99% of the time.
My family…
is my support system.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…
either Diane Von Furstenberg, Lauren Conrad, or Rachel Zoe.  Their lives, careers, and paths as business women in the fashion industry both fascinate and inspire me.
One thing I cannot live without…
my Milani eyebrow pencil.  Eyebrows are everything!
When I was younger, I wanted to be…
my own boss.
I’m inspired by…
powerful women.  And art.
The one person who motivates me is…
I have two, both of my parents!  I strive to make them proud.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be…
chipped manicures.  Keep those nails fresh, ladies!
The perfect day would be…
a relaxing day with my fiancé, including pizza and watching a movie.
My first job was…
a hostess at Zen 32 (a sushi bar that was over on Camelback and 32nd Street).  My co-workers always dared me to try new things, so thanks to them I’m a sushi lover!
My favorite escape…
is roaming the aisles of Target.
My life…
is a blessing.
I’m currently working on…
planning my wedding, and maintaining a healthy work/life balance. #workaholic
Always…
be gracious.
Never…
put yourself down.
Favorite Quote…
“Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain one once we grow up.” -Pablo Picasso
Biggest Dream…
is to live a happy & fulfilling life… being a wife, a mother, and running a successful business.  I dream of having it all!  I also hope to inspire other young women to pursue their dreams.
My Pet Peeve(s)…
there’s one word that really grinds my gears: y’all.
