A typical day in my life includes…

major multi tasking. But it’s never ” typical.” My PR firm handles media relations for big brands and small start-ups. On a daily basis, we generate feature stories with news outlets like the Today Show, Real Simple Magazine or The Wall Street Journal. Each day brings new adventures and challenges.

I was born…

in New York, but I consider myself an Arizona native since I was raised here since the age of 5. That counts, right?

My favorite thing about Arizona…

hands down, the sunshine! It may be hot, but at least it’s sunny and I’ll take that over gloom and grey any day.

I’m listening to…

my son practice his piano. Currently, it’s a series of Disney songs and Fur Elise by Beethoven.

My family…

is my life.

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

I’d love to bring my beloved grandmother back for just one of her meals. The best Italian cook – ever!

One thing I cannot live without…

Diet Coke and my iPhone. I know that’s two things, but I’m not sure I could pick just one. If I absolutely must choose, I’ll toss the phone and keep the caffeine.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a fashion buyer or a psychologist. But as a teenager I settled on TV News Reporter/Anchor, which I proudly was for 10+ years before finding my true passion in public relations.

I’m inspired by…

hard work. I firmly believe it pays off.

The one person who motivates me is…

any entrepreneur.

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

this is a tough one as there’s plenty to change. I’d love for people to stop judging and just be kind to one another. Wouldn’t that solve so many problems right there?

The perfect day would be…

on the beach. Nearly any beach will do.

My first job was…

as a preschool teacher’s aide.

My favorite escape…

vacation. I love getaways with my family (anywhere with sunshine.) Travel is good for the soul!

My life…

is pretty darn good. You won’t hear me complain (most days.)

I’m currently working on…

expanding our firm to incorporate more services. Stay tuned!

Always…

be grateful.

Never…

be mean.

Favorite Quote…

Henry David Thoreau “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you’ve imagined.” It motivates me every time I read it!

Biggest Dream…

a condo right on the beach in Coronado, CA sounds about right.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

Laziness; it won’t get you anywhere. Bragging; no one cares. When people gripe about being so busy; aren’t we all?
