A typical day in my life includes…

I start each day the best way possible – with puppy kisses from my 3 dogs. After that, I’m off to either Newland Communities’ Phoenix office or I head to Estrella in Goodyear where I work on positioning Estrella as the premier master-planned community in the Southwest Valley. Our collection of prestigious homebuilders, unmatched amenities, and unique neighborhoods make it easy because there really is no better place to live on the west side of town than Estrella. After work you can catch me at home with my boyfriend having a relaxing dinner or out with friends for happy hour.

I was born…

in Phoenix; yes I’m one of those “rare” native Arizonans!

My favorite thing about Arizona…

is the expansive blue skies and our nearly 365 days of sunshine.

I’m listening to…

podcasts (currently obsessed with The Bright Sessions).

My family…

is crazy (isn’t everyone’s?).

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

Notorious RBG (Ruth Bader Ginsburg).

One thing I cannot live without…

my iPhone and lip gloss. I need at least 2 things, don’t make me choose!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

an actress.

I’m inspired by…

the amazing team of people I am lucky enough to get to work with everyday.

The one person who motivates me is…

still my mom, even though I lost her to non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2007.

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

an end to animal cruelty. I think if we were kinder to the animals in our societies we would also be kinder to each other.

The perfect day would be…

Sunday brunch followed by shopping followed by a nap.

My first job was…

as a cookie baker at the Original Cookie Company in Superstition Springs Center (chocolate chip cookies are still my favorite warm carb).

My favorite escape…

reading.

My life…

is what I’ve made it.

I’m currently working on…

improving as a marketer. Even with 13 years of experience there is always a new tactic or change in technology to master. Being in a constant state of learning is definitely the key to success.

Always…

fake it until you make it.

Never…

be afraid to fail.

Favorite Quote…

“What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” ~Sheryl Sandberg

Biggest Dream…

to check each destination off my bucket list (currently tied at the top: Reykjavik, Iceland and Istanbul, Turkey).

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who put their roller bag luggage into the overhead bin sideways. It’s supposed to go wheels in first – if it doesn’t fit that way, check it!
