A typical day in my life includes…

coffee and lululemon…lots of both, please and thank you! I wake up to my hubby leaving for work at 4 or 5am (go Air Force!) and Copper jumping on me and licking my face. Coffee in hand, I get to rock lululemon all day at my office in the Scottsdale Airpark as I help people relieve stress, change behaviors and improve quality of life/performance. I am a fascial stretch therapist and mobility specialist, and absolutely LOVE working with my clients, both in my office in person and managing their selfcare programs for home. My day usually includes a walk to Scottsdale Quarter to visit Press or lululemon (or Zinburger), some yoga/meditation/strength training, recharging with my community in some way and ends with light entertainment (anyone have a great funny Netflix recommendation?).

I was born…

in Arizona! I am a true desert fox.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is spring training. I love the perfect weather, the chance to enjoy our mountains and pools, our spring visitors, my baseball clients, the excitement in the valley and the return of longer warmer days.

I’m listening to…

ocean waves on Spotify and my fingers typing.

My family…

is ever-growing. What I love most about my career is the relationships I’ve built with clients who have turned into friends, and then family. Through my business, yoga, lululemon and charitable communities I now have “family” around the world and it is amazing. I even met my husband through SeaWheeze, lululemon’s annual half marathon in Vancouver BC, at a yoga class in Glendale AZ. We are all so connected and I love finding those relationships.

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

my younger self (as a 13-16 year old), along with Oprah, Ellen, Princess Diana, Mother Theresa, Brene Brown, Taylor Swift and Melinda Gates. I could learn so much from these powerful women and what an interesting dinner that would be!

One thing I cannot live without…

hair ties. I always have one on my wrist or in my hair. If I ever had to go on “Naked and Afraid”, this would be my item. I guess I could figure out how to make a fire, find food and purify water, but I absolutely need to be able to keep my hair off my neck. Eek.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an FBI Special Agent. I was obsessed with solving mysteries and puzzles.

I’m inspired by…

the strength and resilience in the people around me.

The one person who motivates me is…

my husband Brian. This is so hard to answer, because I have so many motivating people in my life. But Brian is one of the most motivated people I know. He leads by example, he volunteers his time and energy to countless good causes, and he is passionate about what he believes in. He doesn’t let anything get in the way of completing a task/goal (which can drive me nuts at times)—and he loves to motivate others. He inspires me, and drives me crazy, all at the same time! Love you, babe!

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

world peace! 😉 and people would be kind to themselves and others.

The perfect day would be…

I love to travel, and love the ocean, so I would just plop one of my regular days by a warm sunny beach and that would be perfecto!

My first job was…

babysitting for my neighbor at age 10, while she worked on tasks at home. I made $3 an hour. I thought I had really made it!

My favorite escape…

is reading a great mystery (Agatha Christie is a favorite author) or getting lost in an old book. I can lose all track of time.

My life…

amazes me. I laugh as I write this, because I am goal-oriented and very driven…but I never planned for my life to look the way it does today: I never planned to own a business, be a military spouse, have a dog, teach yoga for fun or be recovering from a serious illness. And yet I wouldn’t change anything. I don’t know how I got so lucky. My life is an adventure.

I’m currently working on…

recovering from traumatic brain injury and vision loss following an accident last summer. I was rear ended in August 2018 and had significant injuries that kept me out of work, workouts, driving, taking care of myself and impacted my social life for months. I had a lot of trauma to my eyes, brain, and skull – my right eye even moved higher than my left eye, causing balance, depth perception, headaches and countless other problems. I was diagnosed as legally blind in my left eye for a period of time. I worked very hard in vision therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy and with mental health providers to cope and move forward from the accident. I have made great progress these past seven months, and have so much hope for a full recovery in the next several months! I would never have made it through this year without the support of my friends, family, clients, therapists, doctors and my community; I have so much to share to help others who go through similar life-altering occurrences. That keeps me motivated!

Always…

treat others the way I want to be treated.

Never…

take things/time/people for granted.

Favorite Quote…

“Follow your heart but take your brain with you” is my mantra.

Biggest Dream…

is to use my challenging personal experiences along with my education and resources to empower others to overcome their challenges. The last year has been the hardest year of my life, and I want to help others survive and thrive through adversity. I am living this dream through my business, and want to do it on a national and then global scale. I am passionate and see such a great need for this!

My Pet Peeve(s)…

when people don’t follow through on what they say they will do.
