Title: Arizona Luxury Specialist for Jim Beam

Married/Single: married

Kids: a daughter; Daeci in Tennessee

City you live in: Paradise Valley

A typical day in my life includes…

meeting with buyers of high end luxury establishments like resorts, cocktail bars, steakhouses and country clubs to educate and expand the luxury brands I represent within Beam Suntory. It’s a lot of hosting dinners, creating events things that will stick out and resonate with someone and build our brand.

I was born…                          

on a Sunday, April 5th in Erie, PA.

My favorite thing about Arizona…             

the sunsets. I love sitting on a patio enjoying a cocktail and watching the sunset with friends.

I’m listening to…               

depends on time of day, while working out typically Eminem or something similar. During my down time typically country music.

My family…         

is my everything. I could do without everything else in this world but my family.

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

Booker Noe, he was the 6th generation master distiller of Beam. He is considered the godfather of small batch bourbons and initiated the craze in the early 90’s that we know today.

One thing I cannot live without…             

bourbon and my family.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…    

a marine biologist, I love the ocean. Dolphins and sharks are some of my favorite animals.

I’m inspired by…               

coming up with creative ideas to improve something or make something new. I think that’s why I love my job so much. It gives me the opportunity to create new events and programming strategies.

The one person who motivates me is…                    

my mother Lisa; she is a cancer survivor who, as a young single mother, put herself through school and began her own business.

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

our need or desire for social media. We have become very detached from the world around us. I see it every day, people with their phones in their face rather than enjoying the beautiful scenes of Phoenix or engaging with the people around them.

The perfect day would be…         

on a beach somewhere with no phone service and a tiki drink in my hand.

My first job was…              

mowing lawns at 12 years old.

My favorite escape…      

the gym, that’s my getaway every morning.

My life…                                 

is amazing. I can’t believe I do what I do and get paid for it. Never thought growing up in the small towns of Tennessee I would be in Arizona working for Jim Beam.

I’m currently working on…           

renovating my house and yard. I love to design and create a resort like feel at my own house.

Always…               

make time for yourself.

Never…                                   

go to bed angry.

Favorite Quote…              

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” – Thomas Edison

Biggest Dream…                

to be able to travel the world.

My Pet Peeve(s)…            

people that think they know everything or close minded people. I come across consumers every day that think Jim Beam is a just the white label they remember from college. When I introduce them to Knob Creek, Basil Hayden and even Bookers their eyes light up and they realize they’ve been missing out all these years.
