Hometown: Phoenix, AZ

First job: My mom sister & I ran a women’s accessory/ clothing boutique out of my parents house when I was in high school, we would do house parties, pop up in salons etc. BEST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE & met the most incredible women & became addicted to entrepreneurial opportunities…I also slayed smoothies at 24 hr fitness with my girlfriends & worked at FRENCH CONNECTION AT KIERLAND. I mean 1 job was never enough apparently. 😉
Favorite AZ restaurant and why: its a tie– I basically live to eat pizza– POMO PIZZERIA & their spicy oil drizzled all over the Diavola pizza… YES PLEASE & I also live for a good sexy- lively- ambience & cocktails–STEAK 44. I mean I don’t even eat the steak… I have 2 kids– 2 & under– so a strong drink & being with my hubby sans the children- phones & work is a beautiful thing…

Person who has impacted your life the most: My HUSBAND… come rain or shine he supports me, encourages me, picks me up on the hard days, and after being together for 10 years he is still my biggest fan– he watches all my IG stories and send me texts about how funny they are… come on- he’s the BEST!
Your biggest accomplishment in your eyes and why: PERSEVERING & believing in myself even tho everyone around me would not so kindly suggested that I WOULD FAIL…

The biggest obstacle you have overcome: Oh man… Biggest obstacle is being self taught- overcoming my mistakes- learning that rejection sucks but you just keep gracefully going from one rejection to the next…
Someone who inspires you and why: I have met so many courageous women in the valley who are slaying businesses who have families at home who are successful & kind. I LOVE MY LOCAL BOSS MAMA’S!!
Favorite quote: “Tho she be but little she is fierce.” Shakespeare

Advice to someone pursuing a career path in what you do: HAHA… don’t do it the way I did it!!! But seriously, never take no for an answer- I literally showed up on manufacturers door steps and begged then to give me a chance…. and when they said no… i wouldn’t except the no– I was like a stray cat I kept coming back and they eventually agreed to work with me… TRUE STORY.

What you think makes someone fabulous: A U T H E N I C I T Y & GENUINE KINDNESS.
