A typical day in my life includes… First coffee before anything else. Then, spending my day working with clients and vendors for our events, more coffee, and after work is much needed downtime with family or friends, or working on volunteer tasks with Midtown Players (a nonprofit community theater group in Midtown, Phoenix).
I was born in New Jersey.
My favorite thing about Arizona… the wide-open spaces.
I’m listening to… New Album by The Maine
My family…are my close friends, and spending as much time with them is always a priority.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… Anthony Bourdain
One thing I cannot live without… COFFEE!
When I was younger, I wanted to be… a fashion designer.
I’m inspired by… small business entrepreneurs. I love learning about other people’s beginnings and how they overcame their obstacles and created successful businesses.
The one person who motivates me is… my partner, he is my number one cheerleader, he constantly motivates and lifts me up even during the most stressful of times.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be…how people treat each other.
The perfect day would be… relaxing anywhere by water. Being around water is so calming, peaceful, and rejuvenating.
My first job was… as an event venue assistant.
My favorite escape… any activities that require being outdoors, hiking, kayaking, but most of all traveling.
My life… is constantly changing and evolving but it is uniquely mine.
I’m currently working on… a destination event for a corporate client.
Always… say please and thank you.
Never… take anything or anyone for granted.
Favorite Quote… “Skills can be taught. Character you either have or you don’t have.”- Anthony Bourdain
Biggest Dream… to continue creating unforgettable events that have a profound impact on people.
My Pet Peeve(s)… disorganization
