I was born… in Wisconsin…

I may be a cheese head but I’m NOT a Packers Fan! Go Bears!

My favorite thing about Arizona…

Being able to sit on my back patio in January and enjoy the most perfect weather while the rest of the country is getting dumped on with snow. Plus, you can get a pretty stellar margarita almost anywhere around here.

I’m listening to…

the “frat music” app on my iPhone. It’s a sick obsession; it’s like I’ve reverted back to my college days – complete with mashups in ever genre.

 My family…

is nearby, which is such a blessing with a baby. Two words: Built-in Babysitters.

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

Adam Levine of Maroon 5. Don’t judge!

One thing I cannot live without…

Chapstick

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

A writer. I had journals and journals full of short stories and poetry. My backup plan was a professional rollerblader.

I’m inspired by…

Women who have raised children, sustained a great marriage, and have had successful careers.

The one person who motivates me is…

My husband. He is a man of ALL trades, and if he doesn’t know how to do something, he does his research and teaches himself. It’s inspiring and rare!

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

No more senseless violence. This year alone has been heartbreaking.

The perfect day would be…

A day lounging on a sunny beach with family and friends (and a cocktail)!

My first job was…

As a “sandwich artist” at ToGo’s in North Scottsdale. I was saving up for a Europe trip I went on the summer after my sophomore year of high school.

My favorite escape…

Any beach! The Caribbean, Hawaii, San Diego…. you name it.

My life…

Is hectic, crazy, and non-stop action. I love every minute of it.

I’m currently working on…

The PR for 20 new student housing projects across the nation. Along with the press for all my other fabulous clients at Serendipit!

Always…

say “thank you”… appreciate the little things that people do for you, personally or professionally, to make your life a little easier.

Never…

Drink and drive, or text and drive!

Favorite Quote…

“Don’t let your dreams be dreams” – Jack Johnson

Biggest Dream…

To work for myself and do what I love. CHECK!

My Pet Peeve(s)…

When people are constantly late. I’m a “15-minutes early is on-time” kinda girl.
