I was born…

in Denver, CO

My favorite thing about Arizona…

The sunrises and sunsets, the Grand Canyon, climbing Camelback Mountain, and the opportunities here

Everything from Beyonce to Krishna Das to Pearl Jam to John Mayer to Earth Wind and Fire.  I love music and have a very eclectic iPod .

My family…

is everything to me.  John and I have 3 daughters and 1 son-in-law.  We all have so much fun together.

One thing I cannot live without…

My iPhone.  It has everything on it.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a geologist like my Dad.

I’m inspired by…

My 3 daughters.  They are very different from each other yet good friends.  They have very different professions and are all becoming successful in their fields.

The one person who motivates me is…

my Dad.

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

That all children have love, hope and opportunity.

The perfect day would be…

Going to an early yoga class with my three daughters, then hiking Ajax with my family, lunch on the Sun Deck , and dinner at Cache Cache and then a great show at Belly Up.

Aspen

My life…

is blessed and fulfilled.

I’m currently working on…

Hollywood Costume, the pARTY 2014.   It is keeping me busy and I truly hope it is a successful and fun event.

Always…

Be positive

Never…

Blame others for your own circumstance

Favorite Quote…

Be Present

Biggest Dream…

Living long enough to see all my daughters fulfill their dreams.

My Pet Peeve…

Negative people and blaming others for what is wrong with one’s life.
