What do I do best?
I am really good at connecting with people. Everyone has a story and I want to hear it, I love learning about the people around me, where they’ve been, what their goals are, who they are. It’s so inspiring to learn about others and gain insight from them.
What makes me the best version of myself?
Being adaptable. Things and situations can change and being able to roll with the punches, so to speak, has made me successful.
What are my aspirations?
I want to do more. Just in general...I feel like there is so much good to do in the world and I want to find my place to make my mark. I don’t know what it is yet but I’m working on a few things ;)
My Biggest Success?
Y7 has to be my biggest success to date. I wake up every day so grateful that I get to be a part of such an amazing community.
My Most Challenging Moment?
My biggest challenge was deciding to leave a career that i loved in order to pursue Y7 full time. I was growing in my career the same time that Y7 was really taking off and it was a big decision for me to leave that behind. But I’m so glad I did.
It's like this now.
My Favorite People/Role Models?
Rebecca Minkoff is one of my favorite people ever. She balances her brand, career, and family like a boss, yet is one of the kindest, realest people I know. I hope to be half the woman she is one day.
My Favorite Places/Destinations?
Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. Its heaven.
My Favorite Products/Objects?
I have this crazy neck massager from Brookstone (super dorky) I love it and use it almost every day.
My Current Passions?
I don’t really know! I guess the growth of Y7 is what really gets me going - I can’t wait to bring what we do to more cities.
