A typical day in my life includes…

a sunrise hike with my husband and dog, at-home workout, freezing fat all day at Bodify, dinner with my husband, and falling asleep on the couch watching TV.

I was born…

in Manhattan, Kansas. I like to just say Manhattan and have people think NYC.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

great restaurants, beautiful hiking, and perfect weather for most of the year.

I’m listening to…

Dave Ramsey Podcast, KTAR and country music.

My family…

means everything to me. Half of my family lives in Colorado and the other half in Arizona. I feel so lucky that I get to see my sister every day at work and we still like each other at the end of the day. J

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

my dad’s parents. They passed away before I was born and I would love to meet them.

One thing I cannot live without…

wine and traveling.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a surgeon.

I’m inspired by…

my sister. She is 100% fearless; I wish I had more of her in me.

The one person who motivates me is…

my husband. He is so diligent and proactive; he makes me want to be a better person. He’s also a vault of useless knowledge, just once I would like to know something that he doesn’t already know.

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

finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. My sister has it and I hate the disease!

The perfect day would be…

waking up with NO alarm, a beautiful hike with my husband and dog, coffee at AJ’s, sunset cocktails on a patio with a view of Camelback Mountain, and dinner with friends/family at The Mission in Old Town Scottsdale.

My first job was…

my sister and I had a hair tie “scrunchy” business when we were young. With the proceeds, our dream was to buy our dad a Porsche and send our mom on a Hawaiian vacation. Shockingly, we didn’t sell enough scrunchies to do that…

My favorite escape…

travel planning, I love researching travel destinations. Instagram has been my latest travel research obsession – sometimes I think I enjoy the escape of research as much as the travel itself.

My life…

I have been very blessed. I had a great childhood and things seem to come easily to me. I like to be positive and believe things will always work out for the best.

I’m currently working on…

taking my business to the next level. It’s fun being in business with my sister/partner in crime. It is also great to be in the driver’s seat when it comes to building the life that I want.

Always…

be positive, wear mascara, and spend time with the people you love.

Never…

complain. To me, the glass is always half full. If you don’t like your situation, you most likely have the power change it.

Favorite Quote…

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.” ― Henry Ford

Biggest Dream…

to have a successful marriage and business, have the freedom to travel the world, have adventures of a lifetime, and to be crazy generous!

My Pet Peeve(s)…

complaining drives me nuts. Also, people who are too lazy to return their shopping carts, come on people!
