A typical day in my life includes…

coffee, emails, design work & appointments, dinner with my hubby or drinks with friends. I usually get a second wind after dinner and complete a few more tasks before watching some Netflix’s and Zzz’s.

I was born…

in Fairfax, Virginia but moved to Scottsdale at a very young age.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

I love the AZ heat, trendy restaurants and all the outdoor adventures it has to offer.

I’m listening to…

different audio books every week on Blinkist – books in 15 minutes.

My family…

is very close and they work together running a sales and marketing company based in Phoenix.

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

This is always such a difficult question as I could give 30 answers! Maybe Jonah Berger, Dalai Lama, Brene Brown or Anna Wintour.

One thing I cannot live without…

a cup of black coffee!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an artist, I didn’t land that far off!

I’m inspired by…

other women entrepreneurs who balance their family, friends, home and successful business.

The one person who motivates me is…

I am not necessarily motivated by a person but rather other creatives and the event planning industry itself. I consider myself very fortunate to be a part of an industry that truly goes above and beyond to lift each other up.

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

giving people more compassion and kindness!

The perfect day would be…

coffee, a blowout, then a European style lunch that lasts for hours with my husband, sisters and few close friends.

My first job was…

My first paying job was a private soccer coach but I was simultaneously interning for small Fashion Designers in San Diego and LA. I was working behind the scenes for these designers working with models, social media, marketing strategies and on very occasion the designs themselves.

My favorite escape…

I absolutely love to snowboard anywhere that has great pitch and snow. However, I also really enjoy the beach, lake, and traveling to new places.

My life…

is full of people I love and I try to live in a place of gratitude each and every day!

I’m currently working on…

corporate holiday parties, birthday parties and of course lots of weddings! On the side, I am planning a fall vacation to Europe!

Always…

choose to be happy, treat yourself with kindness and go after your dreams!

Never…

be greedy!

Favorite Quote…

I have SEVERAL favorite quotes but here are a few…

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou.

“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” – Henry David Thoreau

“The happiness of most people we know is not ruined by great catastrophes or fatal errors, but by the repetition of slowly destructive little things.” – Ernest Dimnet

Biggest Dream…

I feel like I’m already doing it! Great friends, family and a career that can provide a living doing something I love. Always want more, but never be greedy.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

don’t copy other people’s work or ideas and take credit for it AND please peel the stickers off the bottom of your new shoes before wearing them!
