City you live in: Central Phoenix

A typical day…

 My alarm goes off at 6am. I am not a snoozer so I grab my phone and instantly check my email from bed. Then I hit up Luci’s Marketplace for my non-negotiable Americano and head into work. Although my routine is roughly the same, no day of mine is ever the same.

When I get home in the evening I look forward to making dinner with my boyfriend and relaxing. I am a Law & Order fanatic so my day normally ends up with a few episodes before I head to bed around 9 or 10pm..  

Born… 

in Hinsdale, IL, a western suburb of the best city in the United States, Chicago.

Favorite thing about AZ… 

Everything. Although Phoenix is home I love all the other cities that make this state so unique. There is so much to see and do and the weather is the absolute best.

I’m Listening to…

The Chainsmokers

My family…

is everything. They are by far my biggest blessing in life.

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

dinner with Francis Shields, my grandmother that passed away when I was just a kid. She was a classy lady who lunched like the best of them and also had a knack for hats, shoes and coats. I think about her all the time and I really wish I could have eaten many more meals with her.

One thing I couldn’t live without…

Pizza, duh

When I was younger I wanted to be…

A veterinarian and I still love animals.

I’m inspired by… 

anyone who believes in something bigger than themselves that has the courage and the guts to put it out there for the world to see.

The one person who motivates me is…

 tie between my parents. My mother is the sweetest, always self-sacrificing for everyone around her, supporting all of us with everything she has and willing to do ANYTHING for her family. My father is my example and business partner, his nickname is Bone, he is a bad ass, enough said.

If I could change anything in the world… 

make airline prices go down so everyone can go explore the world more and get out of their own city.

The perfect day would be…

getting up early, walking to the farmer’s market, grabbing coffee, thrifting, laying out and grabbing dinner with friends.

My first job…

was ironically at a pizzeria. I was 15 and eager to make my own money…for shopping of course.

My fav escape…

Mexico! Or anywhere warm. I love the sun and ocean.

My life…

Has the right amount of routine and adventure.

I’m Currently working on…

being involved in a non-profit helping to empower women.

Always…

work hard, be grateful, take the trip, buy the shoes & eat the pizza. You are not getting any younger.

Never…

look back or even peak outside of your lane in life. You’re exactly where you should be and if you are not, you’re the only person who can get you to that place you want to be.

Fav Quote…

“If you don’t have emotion and you don’t have passion, then you shouldn’t be in business, because money is a byproduct, not the purpose. If you don’t love what you do you shouldn’t do it.” -Marcus Lemonis

Biggest Dream…

I love the pizza business, but I look forward to expanding our company and creating other new concepts.

Pet peeves…

People who have opinions from the sideline. Get in the game and compete, then form an opinion.
