I come from a large family and I am the oldest of 8. I have always loved cooking and entertaining since I was very young. The restaurant industry has been my life for over 30 years. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I was born…

In Sedalia, MO

My favorite thing about Arizona…

The smell of monsoons coming. It means summer is almost over and fall is coming.

I’m listening to….

It will surprise some people but I can be a total metal head. I love Metallica.

My family…

Is everything to me. As crazy as we can be, we stick together.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

My brothers. I lost one brother at the age of 24 to Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome in’92 and just lost my youngest brother this past January to brain cancer. He was 40.

One thing I cannot live without…

A great Champagne and gin.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

An actor or a lawyer. They are kind of the same right?

I’m inspired by…

My daughter Michaela. I think she is amazing. Also, my boyfriend Ben has bacon wrapped things that no one has ever thought of.

The one person who motivates me is…

Myself. I am never satisfied. I want to pursue all expectations of myself.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

That everyone should have access to good healthy food. No one should go hungry.

The perfect day would be…

Cooking at home, sitting at a table with amazing food and drinks. Spending it with everyone I am close to.

My first job was…

In a pizza place called Pinocchio’s. I once had a guy call to say he wanted so much sauce that it would taste like biting into an artery. Weird.

My favorite escape…

Going to Chicago or California to see friends and family . The food and cocktail scene is unbelievable.

My life…

Is still in progress. I look forward to the future every day.

I’m currently working on…

Building my business and the Children’s Museum of Phoenix Gala fundraiser in April, 2014.

Always…

Try to stay positive. Always keep a great Bourbon nearby.

Never…

Ever quit. It’s not an option for me.

Favorite Quote…

Do whatever it takes to make it happen.

Biggest Dream…

Owning my own restaurant, vineyard and gin brand. Is there anything else?

My Pet Peeve(s)…

Rude service.
