A typical day in my life includes…

lots of connecting! Typically I can be found meeting with the Valley’s most philanthropic companies and creating strategies to leverage their businesses for the greater good. From cultivating giving plans and creating innovative ways to give back to those in need, to connecting companies with like-minded causes, I have the privilege of working with a wide array of organizations that operate with a conscientious.

I was born

born in Wichita, Kansas, but moved around my entire childhood so I am a gypsy nomad of sorts.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

I love the connectivity we have here in the Valley. Not only are we an extremely philanthropic community, but we are always on the go, introducing people to others and making big things happen by joining forces with amazing people.

I’m listening to…

Coldplay and Junge Junge.

My family…

is extremely close. Moving around throughout my childhood created a bond as we always had one another to depend on.

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

Warren Buffett. I would love the opportunity to pick his brain about the Billion’s pledge and how his innovative way of thinking has changed the way corporate philanthropy and those who hold the power operate.

One thing I cannot live without…

PEOPLE! I thrive off of others positive energy and I firmly believe that people and relationships color life in the most beautiful ways.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an author or President of the United States.

I’m inspired by…

entrepreneurs who take a leap to start their own small business. And I feel empowered to have joined the ranks of all the dreamers who have vision and who are scrappy enough to go after what they want.

The one person who motivates me is…

my mom. She is the most selfless, hardworking, loving person I know. Her encouragement always lights a fire under me to charge on.

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

the inequality in our society. It saddens me that people have to struggle for the rights that we should all be afforded. Whether it is the LGBT community and their right to marry or women having equal pay for equal work, I think all people deserve the same rights and liberties.

The perfect day would be…

my perfect day would find me in an exotic location exploring different cultures, enjoying good food and drink with amazing friends and family.

My first job was…

as a photography assistant for a local studio.

My favorite escape…

HAWAII.

My life…

is focused on making a positive difference. I have purpose in everything I do. I am a connector and love to spread good energy and positive vibes everywhere I go. I firmly believe that my profession is more than a job or career. What I do professionally is my life’s work. I work each day to enhance communities by connecting citizens with organizations that resonate with them personally.

I’m currently working on…

the launch of my new cause consulting firm 11Eleven. I saw an opportunity to impact and guide companies towards operating as responsible businesses. Connecting communities, companies and causes, 11Eleven Consulting incorporates visionary principles, diverse perspectives and sustainable practices to create programs that benefit society and build positive sentiment for brands. Also, through 11Eleven we are planning a series of charity based fundraising events, which we are calling Cause we Care. These events will connect valley businesses with like-minded causes and create more synergy in making a larger difference in our community.

Always…

trust yourself. Having self-doubt is one of the most damaging behaviors. I strive daily to see the good in myself and in others.

Never…

let others negativity or disloyalty hold you back from your destiny. There will always be haters, but instead of listening to them I just tune them out and tell myself to ask, believe and receive based on my own positive dharma.

Favorite Quote…

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

Biggest Dream…

to travel the world and see everything possible. I believe in the philosophy that if travel were free then I would never be home.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who are disloyal or cause intentional harm to others is something I cannot stomach.
