To learn more about Charlotte, read how she answered these 20 fun questions.

I was born…

in Odense, Denmark – same city that the fairytaler Hans Christian Andersen lived.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is 320 days a year with sun and hardly any wind.  Means I can’t blame a bad hair day on the weather and love all the outdoors activities we can do.

I’m listening to…

a lot of Justin Bieber and related pop, which the kids play all the time. Admitting it’s not bad at all and makes me feel a little younger.

My family…

is all Danish. Our two girls were born here, so they are dual citizens. Blond, little Americans who understand Danish, but mostly reply back in English.

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

Oprah. I would like to “pick her brain” for a few hours while serving her marzipan.

One thing I cannot live without…

is marzipan. It’s why I had to start importing my family brand, Odense.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an accountant as I loved math. Liked how there’s a definite answer – you’ve just got to figure it out.

I’m inspired by…

ambitious people who walk the talk.

The one person who motivates me is…

not really one person. I seek motivation from a lot of people. But they all have one thing in common – a unique drive.

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

the distance between Denmark and Arizona. Would really enjoy the two being much closer to each other.

The perfect day would be…

after a good night’s sleep, some fresh coffee, a walk with the dog, happy kids off to school and reviewing off-the-charts sales reports.

My first job was…

for a golf management company actually now located here in Phoenix. I used to play a lot of golf and will again when time allows.

My favorite escape…

is family vacations. Whether we’re skiing, enjoying Disneyland or Atlantis in the Bahamas. Love the family time without having to cook, wash or clean dishes.

My life…

is full of activity, excitement and not a dull moment.

I’m currently working on…

I’m currently working on a couple of interesting leads for the fall activities. Fall is the high season for marzipan, so now is the time to line everything up for it.

Always…

remember to keep your end goal in mind.

Never…

give up without a fight.

Favorite Quote…

if you don’t change direction, you’re not going anywhere new.

Biggest Dream…

seeing our girls grow up to become happy, successful women both private and professionally.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

when people say they’ll get back to you, and then don’t and dishonesty….those two don’t fly well with me… Just say it as it is!
