City you live in:

A typical day in my life includes…

researching, posting, fulfilling orders, cleaning, cooking.

I was born…

Dec 14, 1986.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is the views. I love nature… I love the mountains.

I’m listening to…

nothing right now, but I love all music! Im addicted to music!

My family…

is the best supportive and loving family that I could ever ask for!

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

my grandfather’s. I was young when they passed and never really got a chance to get to know who they were.

One thing I cannot live without…

my family. They are my strength!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a model.

I’m inspired by…

hard working, positive people. No matter how wealthy you are. Im inspired by the spirit, the heart, and the grind!

The one person who motivates me is…

my brother. He’s successful, hard working and very kind to everyone.

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

equality and fairness. It just really grinds my gears when someone is not treated fairly.

The perfect day would be…

to wake up to thousands of sales on my website, while on a resort sunbathing in my designs drinking a rum punch. I’ll mingle with other women and spread the word about my swimwear as they express how much they love my designs! After that I’ll change for a romantic dinner with my husband and laugh the night away.

My first job was…

working as a hostess at Texas Road House.

My favorite escape…

to go to a lounge and get lost in the music.. I love to dance!

My life…

is not perfect, but I wouldn’t trade or change it for anything in the world.

I’m currently working on…

new designs to showcase during PHXFW.

Always…

stay focused and remain humble.

Never…

boast or brag.. for as quick as you got is as quick as you can lose it.

Favorite Quote…

“Good, better, best.. Never let it rest until your good is better and your better is best.”

Biggest Dream…

to be a worldwide swimwear designer.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

a liar and a thief.
