A typical day in my life includes…

I wake up at 7a, make myself 2 shots of espresso and get to work on my to do list which is usually a few pages long. I’ll forget to eat lunch and then go run errands before heading to my full time job as a house manager in Scottsdale. By 6p I’ll head out and meet up with my fiance for tacos.

I was born…

just outside of Portland, OR, but I moved to AZ when I was six years old, so this is where I call home.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is the community! Everyone is so supportive of small, local businesses and there really is something for everyone, whether you’re into art, the outdoors, or you’re a foodie.

I’m listening to…

shuffle songs from Young the Giant.

My family…

is spontaneous and has always done whatever they want, when they want. I don’t think I had a super traditional upbringing, but my parents have always had such an entrepreneurial, work-for-yourself mentality and I feel like that’s influenced me a lot in life. We were taught to break out of the box at a young age.

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

Ellen Degeneres.

One thing I cannot live without…

lattes!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a ballerina or an ice skater. I had high hopes of being graceful when I was older, that unfortunately did not pan out.

I’m inspired by…

new scenery. I love traveling to new places, but it can be as simple as going on a walk in a new neighborhood or taking a different route to work.

The one person who motivates me is…

my past self. Everyday is a new opportunity to be better and do better than the the day before.

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

the distribution of wealth.

The perfect day would be…

to wake up with an ocean view anywhere in the world and spend a slow day exploring with my fiance.

My first job was…

working retail at Bath & Body Works.

My favorite escape…

is my home. I’m a total homebody, so I put a lot of time and effort into making sure it is a retreat where I can recharge every single day.

My life…

is organized chaos.

I’m currently working on…

work/life balance as a freelancer.

Always…

be kind to those in the service industry.

Never…

litter.

Favorite Quote…

“In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different” – Coco Chanel

Biggest Dream…

to have a small, cute fam and a small, cute house in Phoenix and work for myself for forever.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

when people put up a facade and can’t just be themselves.
