City you live in: Scottsdale
My day is like… a whirlwind of madness that changes from day to day. But I love every second of it.
I was born… in Milwaukee. And I love cheese and bratwurst.
My favorite thing about Arizona…the McDowell Mountains. Anytime I leave and head to a very populated place like New York City, I always miss my mountains.
I’m listening to…the same iTunes mix I’ve been listening to since 2005. I add more songs to it all the time but it’s got a baseline of faves in it.
My family…is shockingly functional.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… Ronald Reagan.
One thing I cannot live without… blue Gatorade—but the light blue, not dark blue.
When I was younger, I wanted to be… a firefighter or FBI Agent.
I’m inspired by… strong, opinionated women who stand up for themselves.
The one person who motivates me is… please, I’m type A++, I don’t need motivation, I am one of the most driven people I know.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… how sensitive we have all become. Chill people. Life is way to short to be offended so often.
The perfect day would be… spent in Hawaii—stand up paddle boarding, fish tacos, mai tai, reading a good book with the ocean breeze blowing.
My first job was… slinging cream cheese at Lox, Stock and Bagel in McCormick Ranch.
My favorite escape… Maui or the Big Island, hard to pick which one I love more.
My life… is fantastic.
I’m currently working on… starting a You Tube channel dedicated to makeup tutorials for women over 30.
Never… jealous—no time for pettiness.
Favorite Quote… Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling Peter 4:8-9.
Biggest Dream… spending a month in Maui during the summer…hopefully next year.
My Pet Peeve(s)… jealously and insecurity—I am not a fan of people projecting their ‘issues” on the rest of us. Take the time to see a professional if you need help, no shame in that game.
