A typical day in my life includes…

I am constantly juggling many hats. I am a housewife and dog mom, always ensuring we have healthy meals and a clean home. I run my Instagram and blog as my business. I am also the Co-Leader for Phoenix Blogger Babes. I maintain the social media for that, along with brand and collaborative outreach for our members.

Along with all of this, I have a permanently disabled right arm that spasms 24/7 and causes my shoulder to dislocate itself regularly. I have endured this injury for 10 years, since 2009. I am constantly seeking treatment for. I do outreach weekly for potential new medical options and am forever hoping and praying to find any options that could help me with my chronic pain and labeled “disability”.

I was born…

in Charleston, South Carolina.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

my husband was born and raised here. We are blessed to be surrounded by family and an amazing community. We love the quiet life and wide open skies. Arizona has a unique kind of beauty that is hard to understand until you come here and see it for yourself.

I’m listening to…

Air 1 and K-love, as well as 90’s-2000’s rock on repeat. I also can’t stop listening to NF’s new album The Search.

My family…

is filled with my biggest supporters. My siblings are my best friends, but nobody more so than my husband. My parents are high school sweethearts, and I will never take for granted how blessed I am.

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

the entire Minnesota Vikings football team. SKOL!

One thing I cannot live without…

Jesus, ice water and iced coffee. They’re all equal necessities, haha.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a physical therapist.

I’m inspired by…

those who strive amidst challenges in life.

The one person who motivates me is…

my husband is my number one supporter.

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

to live in a world with more kindness and grace. To eliminate waste and complaining.

The perfect day would be…

a day exploring new places with my husband, and coming home to our dog to enjoy a glass of red wine.

My first job was…

a “counter girl” at Barro’s Pizza.

My favorite escape…

somewhere quiet, where I can center my thoughts and re-ground myself.

My life…

is a beautiful work in progress.

I’m currently working on…

growing my brand and embracing all that life has to offer.

Always…

smiling. Truly, ALWAYS.

Never…

giving up or settling.

Favorite Quote…

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Phil. 4:13

Biggest Dream…

to have my own brunch-dinner cafe and to teach yoga to people with disabilities, ideally veterans and children.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

lack of table manners; chewing with mouth open, talking with food in your mouth. People who constantly complain and live a “woe is me” mentality. Drivers who don’t use a blinker.
