City of Residence:
Please describe your occupation:
Field Marketing Manager for North America focusing on API digital events, and our core products at Axway Inc.
Why did you go into that industry?
I was in the entertainment industry planning events like Scottsdale Fashion Week and decided it was a time for a change. When I hit 30 I changed my career and went into IT, planning conferences and events.
My latest event was a virtual wine tasting and a QA session with NFL Network Steve Mariucci!
What made you want to be apart of Arizona Foothills Magazine’s Most Eligible Phoenicians 2021?
My best friend Mel 🙂
Are you an Arizona native? If not, when and why did you move to Arizona?
AZ Native born and raised. Went to DMHS and ASU #GoDevils!
What is your favorite aspect of Arizona?
The incredible weather and chance to layout in the sunshine in January for my birthday because the weather is 65+

Never been…ready to.
Do you have any children? Would you like to have children?
No.. but I would like 2!
What’s your astrological sign?
Would you describe yourself as more of an extrovert or introvert? Or a little bit of both?
A little bit of both. I love going out for drinks and hitting the new favorite restaurant, but I also love to chill with my glass of wine and Netflix at home.
You have the weekend off, and no work needs to be done. What are you doing?
Relaxing, tanning outside in the sunshine reading the next Nicholas Sparks book, then BRUNCH!
Where was your favorite place you have ever visited? Where do you want to go next?
Paris! I cried when I saw the Eiffel Tower, I enjoyed some champagne and macaroons at the top of the tower and was just shocked I got to experience it. Next on my list is Maldives or Greece!
Favorite movie? Why?
The Dark Knight, I can watch it over and over again.
What kind of music is your favorite? Do you have a favorite artist?
Probably Country, but I love a mix of everything currently I have Gryffin, Diplo, Taylor Swift, Beiber, Chris Lane, Old Dominion, Dierks Bentley, and Zedd on repeat.
Favorite food and favorite restaurant? Why?
Steak and mashed potatoes, my favorite restaurant would be Ocean 44 because a bestie works there.

W Scottsdale has always been my go-to, great service, cool vibes, and I LOVE live music.
If you were to take another MEP selectee on a date, where would you take them and why?
The Henry, great food and drinks, with an awesome patio if it’s a nice day out. Can’t wait!
Tell us something that many people may not know about you:
I had the coolest jobs in college, I worked for Red Bull and the Arizona Diamondbacks for 4 years. Still can’t drink monster or cheer for another baseball team. Also, a die-hard Backstreet Boys fan if I met Nick Carter I would cry.
