A typical day in my life includes…

my days are crazy, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I like to call it “Organized Chaos”. Ha! My kids go to preschool, and I have an office right by their school, I drop them off and hustle into work to manage my client’s social media and digital marketing needs. My evenings are spent playing with the kids, conversations with my husband, and I always end my evening with a nice warm bubble bath.

I was born…

and raised in Phoenix! I am a third generation Phoenician and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. I am a true desert dweller from the moment I was born.

 My favorite thing about Arizona…

the amazing weather! Sure the summer can be a bit hot, but I love the sunshine, the beautiful mountainscapes, and the endless things to do here. It’s an incredible place to live!

 I’m listening to…

it depends on when! I traditionally listen to Britney Spears when I work (ha!) but do tend to have my fair share of kids bop radio on when my kids are around.

 My family…

is my foundation. I am beyond grateful to have an amazing husband, two beautiful and wonderful children, and cheerleader’s sisters and the best family by marriage. I couldn’t be where I am today without their support!

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

my husband! We love to laugh, and it’s so fun to get out just the two of us.

 One thing I cannot live without…

my cell phone – but really! I work, play, and live through that little thing. It’s my lifeline!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a lawyer! I have always been stubborn, and strong willed, and was told that is what makes a great lawyer. I ended up falling in love with marketing and haven’t looked back since.

 I’m inspired by…

strong, brave moms! I love to hear the incredible stories of becoming a mom, and the lengths they go to for family, a career, and a balance. It gives me so much encouragement to keep moving! I love a good #bossbabe.

The one person who motivates me is…

my sister Mindy. She supports me and cheers on my good days, encourages me on my bad days, and would totally take a punch for me if I ever needed her too. She’s my rock star.

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

ending child hunger and abuse. These sweet kiddos that go through this type of suffering is just awful.

The perfect day would be…

the best iced latte, a long glorious hike in the mountains, a good book and a warm bubble bath.

 My first job was…

at KnTacoHut (that’s a KFC, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut in one)! I lied on my application and started when I was 15. it was a fun job and still know my first boss!

My favorite escape…

the mountains, some alone time in beautiful nature is SO my jam.

My life…

is crazy amazing, I am beyond blessed!

 I’m currently working on…

Desert Moms Blog! The events, the blogs, the community and really all of the excitement behind the new launch. It has been a blast!

Always…

be kind.

Never…

let the word no stop you, just move onto the next and keep following your dreams.

Favorite Quote…

“Stay away from negative people, they have a problem for every solution”.

Biggest Dream…

to build the best resource and go-to place for moms in the Valley!

Pet Peeve(s)….

lazy people, because we don’t have time for that!
