I was born…

in Farmington, NM.

My favorite thing about Arizona is…

the weather, but only in the winter.  J

I’m listening to…

Pandora at my office desk.  Bob Marley is on and is keeping me relaxed and focused.

My family…

is the world to me.  My daughter, Lily, is 2 and my sister, Brianna, is 17 and getting ready to graduate this year from Dobson High School.  I legal adopted my sister Brianna when she was 14 and she has been with me since she was 13.  My extended “family” is composed of many lifelong friends.

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

my best friend Stacey Kass.  He passed away when we were in our early 20s.  I would love to see his smile again and fill him in on all the exciting things that have happened in the last 10 years and to introduce him to my daughter.

One thing I cannot live without…

books.  I love to read anything from fiction, biographies, to non-fiction.  Reading relaxes my soul and gives me an “out” to escape from the real world and get transported into a place where anything is possible.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a teacher.  Being around kids always made me happy and I loved the idea that I could make a difference in a child’s life.

I’m inspired by…

my daughter Lily.  Having her makes me realize that I always want to be a better person.

I am motivated by…

my kids.  I want to be everything and more for them, to be a good example to them as they grow up and find their place in the world.  As any parent I want the best for them.

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

inequality.

The perfect day would be…

a day where I could wake up in the mountains of Colorado in a secluded cabin where I can show my girls the joys and beauty of nature.

My first job was…

with Mesa Airlines as in Revenue Accounting in Farmington, NM.  I ended up transferring to Phoenix, AZ when I was 19.  From there I relocated to Aspen, CO then to Palm Springs, CA and eventually back to Phoenix, AZ where I ended my 12 year career with them as the Regional Director.

My favorite escape is…

anywhere in the mountains of Colorado.  I love the Colorado outdoors, the smell of the pine trees, the fresh breeze and being able to enjoy nature at its fullest.

My life is…

always in constant chaos and I wouldn’t have it any other way.  (I am a single parent of a 2 ½ year old.)

I’m currently working on…

self-improvement this year.  Really trying to focus on myself and making myself healthier physically, mentally and emotionally.

Always…

smile and remember that your one smile may brighten the day of several people throughout the day.

Never…

have self-pity.  Bad things happen to good people every day.  Take things as they come, learn from them and make them a good learning experience rather than turning them into a tragedy.

Favorite quote…

“If you don’t like something, change it.  If you can’t change it, change your attitude.  Don’t complain” – Maya Angelou

Biggest dream…

is to be able to travel the world with my children.  I want to show them new cultures, art, music, etc. from all over the world.

My pet peeve…

is being late or when people are late for meetings.  Everyone’s time is valuable.
