A typical day in my life includes… all the coffee, working with the best team in the industry to change our community, a game of peek-a-boo, topped off with a glass of wine with my husband.

I was born… Dallas, Texas.

My favorite thing about Arizona…the sun, food and people.

I’m listening to…mostly Little Baby Bum or Freeze Dance on repeat.

My family…is my driving force.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…anyone I can learn from.

One thing I cannot live without… my family, and pasta.

When I was younger, I wanted to be… a teacher.

I’m inspired by… women.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…for every child to have a home.

The perfect day would be…sleeping past 7:00 a.m. and spent with those I love.

My first job was…a hostess.

My life…is fulfilling.

I’m currently working on…leveling the playing field for Homeward Bound families.

Always…treat others the way you want to be treated.

Never…judge someone else’s choices.

Favorite Quote… I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.”
Maya Angelou

My Pet Peeve(s)…when my husband opens cabinets and can’t quite seem to close them.
