Describe a typical day in your life: boot camp, drop daughter at school, work, client lunch, board/committee meetings/work, dinner with family, walk my 2 golden retrievers
I was born… 3 weeks early and have been in a hurry ever since!
My favorite thing about Arizona… the great outdoors
I’m listening to… music from the artists of the 5 concerts I’m attending this summer!
My family… supports me in everything I do. They motivate me!
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… my husband Michael – anytime, anyplace.
One thing I cannot live without…dark chocolate
When I was younger, I wanted to be…an office worker so I could wear nylons and heels and dress up every day. Now I’d give anything to work in yoga pants.
I’m inspired by…the special needs adults at Cortney’s Place (where I serve on their board). Some are challenged just to eat, walk or talk – things we easily take for granted daily. The one person who motivates me is…my daughter Holly and how she is so true to her ethics.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be…to eliminate hunger.
The perfect day would be…collecting a big donation for a great cause!
My first job was…at Dillards making $4.05/hour!
My favorite escape…anywhere in the outdoors/nature.
My life… feels balanced at the moment with family, friends, fitness, fun and philanthropy!
I’m currently working on…chairing this years Annual Tea event for our National Charity League chapter and raising money for the Scottsdale Cultural Council (as a member of the Board of Trustees)!
Favorite Quote…”It Is What it Is”
Biggest Dream…Travel the world without a plan.
