What do I do best?
I’m able to recognize my ego and drown it before it takes over and ruins great opportunities!
What makes me the best version of myself?
I don’t give up. If I have my mind on something, I will persevere no matter how far off the path the initial “no’s” and rejections take me.
What are my aspirations?
I want to be able to juggle it all – my business- which is always growing with my current family (the one I was born into) and the one I hope to grow one day.
My Biggest Success?
Financial independence. It’s taken me a long time to get here, but boy does it feel good to be able to do things on my own terms!
My Most Challenging Moment?
There have been many! But starting a business on my own and all the unexpected problems would definitely be up there!
Don't Sweat the Small stuff. And its all small stuff!
My Favorite People/Role Models?
Registered Dietitian Keri Glassman is my personal rode model for all things business and personal. There is no one more classy, thoughtful, and giving!
My Favorite Places/Destinations?
Central America is one of my favorites!
My Favorite Products/Objects?
SO many, but right now, I am loving my AeroGarden (indoor garden) and my Bodum French Press. The chef’s knife is also an under the radar favorite tool in the kitchen!
My Current Passions?
Yoga, sweating just to sweat, being present, and spending any free time with those that build me up!
