A typical day in my life includes…

up early for a dog walk and gym, work, try to make it to boxing class but most likely Netflix and cooking.

I was born…

In Flagstaff but moved to Tucson when I was 7.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is being able to go from desert to pine forests in just a few hours. Outdoor opportunities are amazing here and I look forward to exploring more.

I’m listening to…

Podcasts: The School of Greatness, Tim Ferriss, Super Soul Conversations. Music: 80’s, old school hip-hop mix on Spotify.

My family…

is amazing. I am very fortunate to be surrounded by such supportive, caring, and fun people.

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

Lute Olson. Lute is a legend.

One thing I cannot live without…

sleeping at least 8 hours. I am not a pleasure to be around on little sleep.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an NBA star. That dream didn’t last long but it was fun.

I’m inspired by…

my parents. I have become the person I am today and have been able to accomplish so much because of them. I am forever grateful they welcomed me in as a child and gave me so many opportunities.

The one person who motivates me is…

anyone who is following their passion and using what they have to help empower and strengthen others.

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

to change people’s perception of youth who have been in foster care to be more positive.

The perfect day would be…

waking up early to head out for a hike/bike ride, walk my dog, eat amazing food, and spend time with family or friends.

My first job was…

Funtasticks Family Fun Park.

My favorite escape…

is a drive up toMt. Lemmon.It’s a great way to clear the mind and reset.

My life…

is evolving. I am always looking to grow both personally and professionally.

I’m currently working on…

getting myself and a mentee from AzCA’s Thrive program ready to participate in El Tour de Tucson. We were lucky enough to have been selected as a beneficiary of the race this year.

Always…

look for ways to help others.

Never…

limit what you can achieve.  

Favorite Quote…

“Would I rather be feared or loved? Easy. Both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me.” – Michael Scott

Biggest Dream…

is to see all youth in foster care have a positive outlook on life and the resources, supports to be successful.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

tardiness.
