City you live in: Phoenix

A typical day in my life includes…

coffee, kids to school, coffee, take care of clients, pick kids up, be Chief Mommy Officer, get kids to bed, follow up with emails…crash! Rinse, wash, repeat!

I was born…

in Dallas, Texas as the youngest of three siblings.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the people, the weather (for most of the year) and the sunrises and sunsets! I also LOVE supporting local businesses in creative ways, like with my show “Arcadia Life TV”!

I’m listening to…

I like to change it up depending on my mood…top hits, classical, country, jazz. I like it all!

My family…

is the most important thing to me. I married my best friend and have the two most amazing boys. I am one lucky gal.

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

my husband! We are both so busy running businesses and taking care of the family, that when I get a chance to have a nice quiet dinner, he is my first choice!

One thing I cannot live without…

coffee! OH, and green tea…I have recently become addicted to flavored green tea.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a country music singer! I idolized Shania Twain and I even got on stage with her and sang while in college! It was awesome. You might even catch me singing on episodes of “Arcadia Life TV”!

I’m inspired by…

successful entrepreneurs. Women, men, kids…anyone who follows a dream and turns it into a successful, thriving business. I am also a co-leader for the Scottsdale Chapter of The W Source, a group of successful entrepreneurial business women, which is so inspiring to me.

The one person who motivates me is…

my husband. He is such a dedicated father, husband and business owner.

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

eliminating any kind of child cancer, disease and violence. Children are so precious and should be allowed to live happy, healthy, fulfilled lives.

The perfect day would be…

sleeping in (with 6 year olds I’m up at 6:00 am every day), enjoying a cup of coffee outside, spending the day with my family just hanging out and never getting out of PJs (so basically Christmas Day)!

My first job was…

a cashier at a dry cleaner! It was probably the best job I have had as I got to work with my sister and brother and we just had a blast.

My favorite escape…

we have taken a family vacation to Watercolor, Florida twice and it is by far the most enjoyable escape from reality. Beach time with the family is just what the doctor ordered.

My life…

is perfect. I have the perfect supportive husband, the most amazing kids and I am truly in my dream job. I honestly love my life.

I’m currently working on…

being the best Realtor and Arcadia advocate I can be. I co-host a TV show called “Arcadia Life TV” where I can showcase all the best places to live, work and play in Arcadia. I believe you pick your neighborhood first and the house is just the cherry on top!

Always…

follow your heart and believe in your dreams.

Never…

forget where you came from.

Favorite Quote…

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”

Biggest Dream…

to be known as the go-to Arcadia Realtor who truly believes and supports her own ‘hood.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who don’t do their job…it seems in todays world that if you actually do the job you were asked to do, then you will stand out!
