Age: 39

Title: Founder & CEO

Married/Single: Married

Kids: A daughter

City you live in: Mesa, Arizona  and Seaside, Oregon 

A typical day in my life includes… Get up early to prep for the work day, prepare my daughter’s lunch and help get her ready for school, head to my Design Studio in Gilbert, AZ to meet with my design team, put together design proposals, work on PR/Marketing initiatives, financials, and finish the day with a workout at Burn Bootcamp

I was born… in Illinois

My favorite thing about Arizona… the weather (despite the crazy hot summers) and easy access to so many great shopping resources, restaurants 

I’m listening to…. various podcasts and music artists (I love A Well-Designed Business by LuAnn Nigara)

My family… is my rock.  My touchstone

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… Jesus.  I have a lot of questions 🙂

One thing I cannot live without… My family

When I was younger, I wanted to be… A teacher and a model 

I’m inspired by… women entrepreneurs that set themselves apart and build a brand that stands out

The one person who motivates me is… My daughter, Rylee and my husband, Ryan

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…  homelessness and that each child was cared for and loved 

The perfect day would be… sleeping in in my comfy bed and cuddling up watching a movie with my family.  Then brunch with prosecco followed by a fun afternoon with my closest friends and momma

My first job was… a receptionist at a hair salon at the young age of 14

My favorite escape… So many! A good workout that makes you feel exhilerated.  A fun afternoon with friends at the pool.  Eating fish and chips and enjoying a fresh cold beer at my Summer home in Seaside, Oregon

My life… is a constant work in progress.  Always learning and trying to improve

I’m currently working on… trying to improve my health as well as becoming the best woman leader I can for my team

Always… keep learning and improving

Never… give up.  My dad always preached “I get knocked down, but I get up again.  Nothing will keep me down” 

Favorite Quote… At my college graduation I had the opportunity to speak as the Outstanding Graduating Senior and I quoted Ralph Waldo Emerson “Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.”  I still believe this strongly to this day

Biggest Dream… That Treasure in the Detail grows big enough to a place that it can bless so many people including families that cannot afford to furnish and style their home

My Pet Peeve(s)…  Rework and inefficiency
