A typical day in my life includes…

a morning workout, brew coffee, shower and get ready for work before getting my toddler up and ready is pretty much a daily routine; Since I have two jobs on top of being a mother, my days are always busy and productive! I also have a large family so if I’m not at work or with my family, I am probably out at another family function with my favorite people!

I was born…

in Mesa, AZ.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

honestly, the weather. Summer’s are hot but everything in between is perfect for me! I also love how there is so much to do no matter your preference of activities!

I’m listening to…

Sasha Sloan & UFYB Podcast by Kara Loewentheil (you are welcome).

My family…

is my world. My WHY and most importantly, my purpose. I will never take for granted how thankful, and grateful I am to have the people in my life I called family. I genuinely believe that it doesn’t matter how big the house is, all that matters is how happy the home is and I cherish mine.

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

my fiancé, lol, considering we have a two-year-old little princess and still get MAJOR mom-guilt as a full time working parents which makes it hard to want to go out once we get home. Or Megan Fox.

One thing I cannot live without…

my family.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a model or actress! I finally fell in love with skincare and learning how the body reacts to our lifestyles is fascinating to me! Hence why I completed my goal in opening my med spa AfterGlow By Sam Aesthetics LLC in Chandler!

I’m inspired by…

everyday moments.

The one person who motivates me is…

my fiancé. He is seriously my biggest fan and is always cheering me on and pumping me up or getting me off my butt when I need a little extra kick in the butt. Also, and honestly, my tribe. This past year has been such a spiritual and moving experience for me and I continue to stay motivated because of the paths I cross, good or bad I evolve.

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

the idea of perfectionism and unnecessary “sexist social norms”.

The perfect day would be…

waking up next to the beach with my baby and my man. Making pancakes and coffee (duh) with the windows open to hear the waves rolling in. Going out for a walk or bike ride after, maybe do a little shopping, then hang out on the beach building sandcastles, playing football, and having a good time. Then refresh for dinner and hit the town for a drink and grub out! Our daughter loves lights so we’d most definitely take a bike ride up and down the boardwalk stopping at Baked Bear for ice cream, before returning back to the beach house to eat the rest by the fire pit and watch our baby play and laugh. After we put her to bed, it’s mommy and daddy time! Cheers to my perfect day! 🙂

My first job was…

a hostess at Dvine Bistro & Wine Bar in Chandler.

My favorite escape…

at the park with my daughter and fiancé, the gym, or the beach.

My life…

is forever evolving and forever changing. The point of change is to grow, to show up for yourself, to express yourself, and be an example of what’s possible. I will forever test my limits and choose to have new experiences. You can be happy and grateful for where you are and still choose to change everything just because you want to. My story is not just about the highlight reel, it is everything in between in the experiences that have shaped me and the me I am today. Hate, unfollow, obsess over numbers, but by the end of the day, if you’re not choosing your REAL happy, that void will never be filled enough for you, love always wins. After becoming a mother, that little girl has opened my eyes and my heart to a whole new meaning to LIFE and I’m eternally blessed.

I’m currently working on…

building my brand, AfterGlow By Sam Aesthetics LLC and being a fiancé and mother.

Always…

choose LOVE.

Never…

judge a book by its cover and never stop learning by being open-minded.

Favorite Quote…

“Let us not love with words or tongue, but with action and in truth.”

Biggest Dream…

to continue building my happy.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

when people chew with their mouth open.

Summarize yourself in one sentence…

the fire within me will ALWAYS burn stronger than the fire around me.
