A typical day in my life includes…

one of the things that I love about my job is that each day is different! But everyday includes coffee, teaching, sweating and time with my husband.

I was born…

and raised in Arizona. I even went to college at ASU. I love it here.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the sunsets.

I’m listening to…

any of the already made playlists on Spotify. I love music but I’m too lazy to look up songs.

My family…

is everything to me. My husband, all of my siblings, my parents, my in-laws…they are all some of the most amazing, loving, supportive people I know and I’m so grateful for all of them.

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

Giada de Laurentiis! If you’re reading this, Giada, I’m free Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays!

One thing I cannot live without…
my family. And bread. Oh, and coffee. Probably in that order.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a Pediatrician! I’ve always loved kids and taking care of people.

I’m inspired by…

my students. I get to meet a lot of amazing people at the yoga studio and everyone has their story to share. I’m constantly amazed and inspired by all of them.

The one person who motivates me is…

my husband. He’s constantly motivating me to be my best self.

The perfect day would be…

sleeping in, coffee, hanging out with my husband, getting in a workout class…I’m pretty easy to please.

My first job was…

a cashier at my family owned restaurant called Rito’s in downtown Phoenix. I was also fired a few times from that job.  Did I mention it was family owned?

My favorite escape…

Bikram yoga. I don’t do it as much as I’d like to these days but it’s still my first love. There’s just nothing like it.

My life…

is exactly where it’s supposed to be. And it’s so wonderful right now I can barely stand it.

I’m currently working on…

this questionnaire.

Always…

give people the benefit of the doubt. Everyone has their own stuff and you just never know what they’re going through.

Never…

take things for granted.

Favorite Quote…

“’You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.’- Wayne Gretsky’ -Michael Scott”

Biggest Dream…

to help as many people through The Foundry as I can. And to be a mom someday.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people that drive too slow. Especially when I’m running late which is always.
