My day usually begins with…a cappuccino and often wraps up with either a hike or a mountain bike ride. In between, I juggle being a busy mom to a child and two dogs while also running my own business.

I was born… in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

My favorite thing about Arizona…is the stunning weather, along with its beautiful hiking and mountain biking trails, offer a perfect blend of outdoor experiences.

I’m listening to ..Fleetwood Mac and Taylor Swift.

My family.. is everything to me!

One thing I cannot live without…is a cup of tea at night.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…a veterinarian.

I am inspired by… people who persevere in the face of adversity, who show kindness and empathy toward others, and who continually strive to learn and grow.

I motivate myself by…setting clear goals and breaking them down into achievable steps. Visualizing success and surrounding myself with positivity help keep me focused and inspired. By staying disciplined, celebrating small victories, and prioritizing self-care, I  maintain momentum and continually move closer to accomplishing my aspirations.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be… to promote global harmony and understanding, fostering empathy and cooperation among all nations and peoples.

The perfect day would be…balancing relaxation with exploring nature, capped off by a delightful dinner at a new restaurant.

My first job was…babysitting.

My favorite escape…is relaxing in Punta Mita, Mexico or skiing in Telluride. 

My life… is everything I’ve ever wanted it to be!

I’m currently working on…an expanded division of our business focusing on residential construction. 

Always…do the things that scare you the most.

Never…avoid uncomfortable conversations.

Favorite Quote… “Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.”

Biggest Dream…To build a remote but luxurious mountain cabin where I could spend my days hiking, biking and relaxing during the hot summer months.

My Pet Peeve(s)…are people not doing what they say, being late, and unkind people.
