A typical day in my life includes…

I typically wake up, fix breakfast and get right to work! I work at home which saves time, but the drawback is I don’t get to be as social as I would like. Thus, we plan on looking at co-working spaces this year.

I was born…

in Niagara Falls, NY.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

my family is here including my brothers, nephews and parents. We all relocated about 10 years ago under separate circumstances from the east and west coasts. Aside from that, I can’t get enough of the beautiful sunsets!

I’m listening to…

funny thing iswhen it comes to music, I am stuck in the past! I like early nineties favorites like Guy and New Edition. I also like classic rock especially Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones.

My family…

and friendsare close to my heart.

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

Gary Vaynerchuk, the author of Crushing It. I am a huge fan and would like to hear more from him.

One thing I cannot live without…

gratitude is my fuel.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a fashion designer!

I’m inspired by…

people who get things done. I am inspired by this every day.

The one person who motivates me is… my mom.

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

apathy! Let’s all be more involved.

The perfect day would be…

one that is as full of serenity as it is accomplishment.

My first job was…

I worked as a cashier at a drug store. I was terrible at it. I am really better working without so much structure.

My favorite escape…

Sedona. I’ve driven up there twice since I moved to the Phoenix area. It is the perfect place for a weekend getaway.

My life…

is content. I am really focused on being the best version of myself that I can be.

I’m currently working on…

aside from my business, I am working on how to be a better cook!

Always…

be empathetic.

Never…

blame others.

Favorite Quote…

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Biggest Dream…

I’m living it. I try and meditate and achieve a little peace each day.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who wait for an opportunity to fall in their lap. Of course, I’ve been guilty of this from time to time. I’ve had to learn that I am the only one who can make it happen!
