A typical day in my life includes…

a daily battle of getting the coffee grounds into the coffee maker and not all over the kitchen floor, an hour of the TODAY show followed by time in the office, lunch meetings, coffee meetings, recording my podcast, Bad Business, scouring my favorite cooking blog for a new recipe and attempting to turn the blog’s photos into an actual meal for my husband and me.

I was born…

at a time when my parents didn’t have any money, but that didn’t stop my dad from buying a new Cadillac for the sole purpose of bringing his new daughter home from the hospital.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

Sunday morning hikes…in December!

I’m listening to…

Rat Pack Radio on Pandora.

My family…

lives in really great vacation spots (San Fran and Wyoming to start)

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

I can’t seem to narrow this down to just one person, so I’ll say I’m always happy to have dinner with any one in music, the arts, or Bravo’s Andy Cohen.

One thing I cannot live without…

sadly, my iPhone.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a lawyer, a fashion designer, an actress, a pop star, to name a few.

I’m inspired by…

creativity and BIG ideas.

The one person who motivates me is…

my husband is incredibly patient and supportive of me growing my business and all the ups and downs that come with that.

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

is world peace too broad of a statement? I just want everyone to be happy, go-lucky. Why is that so hard?

The perfect day would be…

lots of food, lots of naps and time with my husband.

My first job was…

a junior camp counselor for the local park district when I was 13.

My favorite escape…

anywhere that’s not here.

My life…

is all that I want it to be. I have a roof over my head, food in my fridge, good health, people to love and people who love me. What else is there?

I’m currently working on…

at this exact moment I’m procrastinating packing for a trip. In general I’m proud of my podcast, Bad Business, and looking to grow it even more.

Always…

be grateful.

Never…

be ungrateful.

Favorite Quote…

“Wherever you go, there you are.” – Greg Brady, the Brady Bunch Movie

Biggest Dream…

my big break on Broadway. No, I cannot sing or dance…I’m hoping that doesn’t matter.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

poor grammar on Facebook – or really anywhere.
