A typical day in my life includes…

I’m an early riser; I start with devotions, exercise, then work until I’m exhausted…repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

I was born…

in 1991, in Phoenix Arizona.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

sunshine, accessibility to different scenery (Sedona, Flagstaff, trails, waterfalls etc. Arizona has a lot more to offer than most people think).

I’m listening to…

slow jams and ballads, I like to sing so anything I can sing along to. However I find music extremely distracting while working so I rarely listen to it throughout the day.

My family…

is my everything! I am #5 of 6 so I grew up with a lot of noise and chaos and wouldn’t have it any other way. Quirky detail, I’m literally Shanel #5 like the perfume so I feel like I was destined to be in fashion.

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

Kerry Washington, she’s beyond fabulous to me and I want some insight on Scandal!

One thing I cannot live without…

probably exercise, I feel like it just gets me in the right mindset and makes me feel amazing.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a business owner, I didn’t understand what that meant growing up but my parents have always owned their own business so that was my “normal” and I knew I wanted to do what they did just with my own twist.

I’m inspired by…

my parents, they’ve had a business for 33 years and that’s pretty amazing!

The one person who motivates me is…

can I have two? My mom and Jake: both hard working individuals who inspire me by their drive and ambition in both work and personal life. They are also two of my biggest supporters.

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

peoples perception of themselves. I wish I could give everyone the confidence they need to know they truly are beautiful and unique.

The perfect day would be…

uninterrupted time with my boy doing something adventurous and not having to answer a single phone call, text, email…one can dream can’t they?!

My first job was…

working as a cashier at my parents restaurant. I’ve known how to run a cash register since I could count.

My favorite escape…

somewhere in an exotic location on a beach.

My life…

is overwhelmingly blessed, it’s busy but I enjoy what I do!

I’m currently working on…

a way to mass produce custom tees.

Always…

smile, love and forgive.

Never…

let anger fester, hold a grudge.

Favorite Quote…

“But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.”

Biggest Dream…

to produce my own clothing line designed and manufactured from scratch, by me.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

when people are late!
