A typical day in my life includes…

my schedule changes each day, but I can always count of starting with a cup of coffee and an episode of Gilmore Girls.

I was born…

during a blizzard in Iowa City, Iowa.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

there’s a little bit of something for everyone. From the city, to the desert, to the mountains, there is always something to do and it caters to almost everyone.

I’m listening to…

anything country. There’s nothing better than driving with the windows down and singing off key to a good country song.

My family…

are the weirdest and most supportive people I know! My parents are always encouraging me to be the best I can be and my sister is one of my best friends.

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

my grandparents. Two of the best people I had the honor of knowing.

One thing I cannot live without…

music, I listen to it every chance that I get!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a pharmacist, and then I took chemistry in high school and changed my mind.

I’m inspired by…

my mom. She is the hardest working woman I know and she always puts everyone else’s needs above her own.

The one person who motivates me is…

my parents have always supported me and motivated me to work hard to achieve my goals. Their support has made me want to push myself in everything I do because I know no matter the outcome they will be there for me.

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

for people to start looking at life with the “glass half full” rather than the “glass half empty” perspective.

The perfect day would be…

relaxing on a beach with no phone and a good book.

My first job was…

since I was young I have had volleyball a part of my life, so my first job was as a youth volleyball referee.

My favorite escape…

I love to read! It’s so easy to get sucked into a story and stop thinking about everything else I have going on.

My life…

can get a little crazy, but I’m surrounded by amazing people and wouldn’t change a thing!

I’m currently working on…

balancing my time better! Between working at the Pearce Family Foundation, coaching volleyball and having a social life, it can get a little hectic. I’m working on scheduling my time better.

Always…

know your worth and don’t let anyone make you believe you’re less than you are.

Never…

underestimate yourself. You will never know what you can do until you try.

Favorite Quote…

“Be still” – short and sweet but this has always reminded me to stay calm, not stress, and trust that everything will work out in the end.

Biggest Dream…

to continue to work at a job I love, have a big family and travel the world.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

when I can hear people chewing. It drives me absolutely crazy!
