I was born… in Ann Arbor, Go Blue!
My favorite thing about Arizona… is the restaurants. There are so many too choose from with a variety of cuisine types.
I’m listening to… podcasts right now. I am finally able to catch up on podcasts as I work on my client’s projects in my home office. My favorites right now are Being Boss, How She Did That, Side Hustle Pro, Pimp Your Brilliance, and Crime Junkie (guilty pleasure).
My family… have their own crazy quirks but are still loveable. I can always count on them for a laugh on a tough day.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… Michelle Obama, of course, she is the definition of a woman of class and success.
One thing I cannot live without… is my planner as I would not know what to do every day.
When I was younger, I wanted to be… a fashion designer but instead I became a brand strategist.
I’m inspired by… my desire to achieve greatness. I have to become successful as my ambitious self will not let me fail. I am inspired countless number of women who came before who have achieved their goals by overcoming hardships. I am inspired by women who have pioneered the ability to be mothers, career women, bosses and still was able to have it all.
The one person who motivates me is… is my daughter. She motivates me daily to achieve greatness.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… for everyone to have their basic needs met such has being able to have food, shelter and clothing on a daily basis.
The perfect day would be… being able to spend the day with my daughter going on an adventure without having to work on any client projects or homework for my doctoral program.
My first job was… as a hostess at a family restaurant and I have never worked at a restaurant since.
My favorite escape… is a day on the beach sitting under an umbrella with a strawberry daquiri while listening to the waves hit the sand.
My life… is a chaotic mess. There always seems to be more work to do with less hours to get it done but I am somehow managed to make things work most of the time.
I’m currently working on… way too much, which includes launching my second business, writing my first book, my first semester of my doctoral program, various client projects, and learning how to navigate virtual schooling for my daughter.
Always… remember who you are and what your values are.
Never… give up on your goal, only change your plan of action.
Favorite Quote… “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!” – Ben Franklin
Biggest Dream… to create generational wealth and break the cycle. Build enough wealth in my life so that my daughter’s daughters are able to be ahead before their births.
My Pet Peeve(s)… people who chew their food with their mouth open.
