Why do you do what you do?
I do what I do to meet people all over the United States and make them feel awesome and important!
What is the best compliment you've ever received?
I'll give you two: my favorite compliments are that I'm efficient + that I'm a sweetheart.
Where do you thrive?
At 7am, after I've gone to the gym, in front of my inbox with coffee in hand or on a shoot with someone who loves what they're doing
What's the quirkiest part of your weekly or daily routine?
Since I wake up early in the morning I usually hit a slump around 10 or 11 in the morning and I usually have to chug some water + put on something I can dance to to snap out of it.
If you could only have one app on your phone, what would it be?
For sure Instagram.
What's the biggest lesson you learned this past year?
The biggest lesson I learned this last year is that everyone makes decisions based on how their subconscious is trained because of their life up until that point. The best part about that is that you can train your subconscious to realize that you're amazing + capable. You can reframe 'I can't' into 'I can, but I'm going to have to work at it'. I've been learning this in a lot of areas, and the biggest one is that I've learned that a lot of my big life decisions were made out of fear, but I can choose to make them out of a place of competence, community + love instead with a little work :)
