I was born…

Morgantown, WV, but grew up in Pittsburgh, PA

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the weather!  I know it is cliché, but this East Coast girl happily traded in her snow boots for hiking shoes!

I’m listening to…

anything with a beat!  I am always scouring iTunes and music blogs for new songs to motivate my classes!

My family…

is AWESOME! Nothing more to say.

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

Dolly Parton…how fun would that be! I’ve always admired her quick wit and joyous personality. I imagine with 50+ years as a business woman she would have great insight, advice and lots of stories!

One thing I cannot live without…

lip gloss and Dentyne Ice Gum.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a Cruise Director… I watched a lot of The Love Boat.

I’m inspired by…

my clients!  Their hard work and stories of strength, power and perseverance inspire me each and everyday.

The one person who motivates me is…

my mother. She is selfless, generous and a pillar of strength and beauty. My hope is to be half the woman, mother and friend she is.

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

I just saw a beautiful documentary about the power and importance of educating girls across the world. I would love to see all children have access to education.

The perfect day would be….

morning walk with my husband and our dog, followed by teaching classes at Go Figure Scottsdale, a lovely lunch with my mom, a bit of shopping finished off with a back yard BBQ with friends and family.

My first job was…

at The Limited at the mall.

My favorite escape…

London, England. We lived in London for 8 years and all of our children were born there. It will always feel like home.  Plus the weather is not as bad as everyone says:-)

My life…

is blessed.

I’m currently working on…

our Go Figure Scottsdale 2 year Anniversary. After the whirlwind of starting a new business, it will be great to look back with our dedicated employees and clients and celebrate our growth, strength and achievements!

Always…

say I love you.

Never…

go to bed angry.

Favorite Quote…

No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted. –Aesop. Also, strive for progress, not perfection.

Biggest Dream…

own my own business that allows me to pursue my passion and share it with others (check!). Even bigger, operate several Go Figure Studios with my daughter Gigi at my right hand!

My Pet Peeve(s)…

line-cutters, unkindliness, entitlement
