I was born…

in southern Indiana right across the river form Kentucky so we call it Kentuckiana!

My favorite thing about Arizona…

Before I moved to Arizona, I was a model in New York City for 12 years. In NYC, you have  to fight for everything you want, from getting into your favorite restaurant, getting a good seat in a movie theater, getting the apartment you want to fighting for a taxi cab… Here in Scottsdale, you have have the benefit of a laid-back, small town feel with all the luxuries of a big city such as the amazing restaurant scene and tons of fun things to do with kids. The fact that there is a Barney’s also gives some street cred.

I’m listening to…

Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Lana Del Ray.

My family…

fills my cup. Life with those bright smiles and laughter on a daily basis is the best!

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

Kathy Ireland -she has taken her modeling and acting background and created an amazing career and life for herself .

One thing I cannot live without…

Yoga -keeps me sane when the world around me is not.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a movie star and a model and live in a big city. And I did!!

I’m inspired by…

all of the working parents who are juggling so much and making it work. Some days I look around me and I am
in awe that people are on time, their kids have brushed their teeth and their hair and have a packed lunch to boot. Every now and
then that person is me :).

The one person who motivates me is…

Kathy Ireland -she began her career as a model and actress and now runs a world wide,
billion dollar brand.

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

to teach more self motivation and self empowerment to kids in school.

The perfect day would be…

to start with lazy bike ride with the kids, movie and a big snuggle, then finish with swimming & a
BBQ.

My first job was…

at Zestos ice cream shop in New Albany, Indiana.

My favorite escape…

reading a book on the beach.

My life…

is a whirlwind of kids and work and those in between moments where you look around go ahh -life is good!

I’m currently working on…

my High School Senior Campaign -I am photographing my senior models at my favorite locations
around the city for my 2014 campaign. These teenagers are amazing and we are having a blast!

Always…

do your personal best-even when no ones looking.

Never…

give up on your dreams.

Favorite Quote…

“If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs.” -Dhirubhai Ambani

Biggest Dream…

I will have a light hearted talk show showcasing successful working moms & how they juggle family, life and their jobs. I think it would be inspirational to all of us! Like my one friend whose clothes are organized by color -who has time for that?? Well, she does…

My Pet Peeve(s)…

is self centered people.
