What do you love most about Your City?

The cultural diversity and yet the feel that we’re all family in Houston. We can be more than one thing – different and united in a variety of ways.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

Gosh that’s tough – I’m thinking anything from Snooze.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM –  Typically waking up,  watching the news and running through emails and then getting kids ready for school.

10:00 AM – Knee deep in work!

12:00 PM - Favorite Power Lunch spot/meal?

I love the Tipping Point in Hotel ZaZa; great food and great place for meetings!

7:00 PM -  Helping kids with homework and watching the Astros with the family!

11:00 PM – Sleeping!

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

I don’t drink coffee so I typically crave a Diet Coke to get my day started. Then water (or wine) depending how the day goes.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

Most used app would have to be Google Maps or Waze, thankfully it gets me where I need to be in a timely fashion. Favorite instagram account is @msrachelhollis – a motivational business owner for sure.

What should everyone try at least once?

Volunteering or giving time back at an organization that they love. It enriches the soul and reminds us of our purpose – to be a blessing to others.

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

I love reading books written by business owners that help inspire me and drive creativity. Physically I love getting lost in locations with no internet, where I’m forced to unplug and re-energize.
