What do you love most about Your City?

I love the mild winters, ample outdoor spaces, and growing community of Williamsburg, VA. My husband and I essentially fell in love with it while on vacation and decided to move. There’s always something new popping up—it has great history and it’s close to everything: the beach, the mountains, and some of our favorite cities. I’m so grateful that my job allows me the flexibility to choose where I live.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

I rarely eat out for breakfast, but at home I love something sweet. From smoothies to homemade granola squares, I’ve even been known to occasionally eat (healthified) cake for breakfast.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – Sleeping! I think sleep is so connected to our overall health and well-being, yet it’s often something people often overlook. It’s truly when our body detoxifies and it’s something I prioritize. It’s no coincidence that I also work for an amazing natural mattress company.

10:00 AM - Mornings are my most productive time for strategic thinking, writing, and planning—so I try to leave meetings and collaborative projects for the afternoon.

12:00 PM - Favorite Lunch spot/meal?

Honestly, since I work from home, most days I make my own lunch. But when I do meet a friend for a bite, my favorite place to go is Amber Ox. They have an amazing seasonal menu and a fun vibe.

7:00 PM - Hanging out with my husband. Usually going for a walk downtown or  around our neighborhood.

11:00 PM - Getting ready to put my book down, turn out the lights, and go to sleep.

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

My day doesn’t start without coffee, and then throughout the day I drink lots and lots of water.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

Instagram is definitely my most used app. I love seeing what friends are up to and follow anyone who is genuine and whose message aligns with my values. Since social media is part of my job (@AvocadoMattress), I also love seeing other authentic brands sharing their stories. @MindBodyGreen is another great one, with a mission to make wellness accessible. I love their mantra: You. We. All.

What should everyone try at least once?

Questioning the “stories” they’re telling themselves. Are your own thoughts holding you back from accomplishing your goals, getting your dream job, or trying something new?

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

I  love visiting and exploring cities. For work I often travel to LA, and it’s definitely a favorite. Thanks to my phone and Uber I don’t usually truly get too lost anymore, though.
