Give us a peek into your day-to-day life! Where do you go? What do you do? Whom do you see? From career path to personal passions, we would love to learn about what makes you, you.

As a working mom, days can get a little chaotic! I’ve learned how to manage my schedule to maximize time in the office and still make time for family and a healthy lifestyle. I specialize in Change Leadership, which has connected me with people not only from different areas of the organization, but from all over the world! My evenings are usually laid back and filled with cooking (I love to cook!) and stories from my kids about their days–amid squeals and laughter, of course!

Where do you live? What do you love about it? Brag about the city you call home!

I live in Dallas, Texas, the cultural hub of the region, and absolutely love it! They say everything is bigger and better in Texas…and they are right! It is a city that continues to expand and there is always so much to discover. There are so many options and things to do in Dallas. From shopping to eating at new restaurants to exploring the various entertainment venues–we LOVE it here!

What does summer look like to you? Is there something special about summertime in your city? Tell us about some of your favorite traditions!

I love everything summer, especially the hot summer sun and longer days! You can usually find us at the pool or headed to an outdoor restaurant. We always try to take advantage of local farmer's markets, parks, and hiking trails throughout the city. We also love outdoor movie nights under the stars and visiting all the kid-friendly places Dallas has to offer (like the Perot Museum, Dallas World Aquarium, and TopGolf!)

We love seeing how unique each woman’s style is to her personality. When you get dressed in the morning, what inspires the pieces you select and the outfits you create?

My style is simple-chic. I gravitate toward timeless, classy pieces and love clean lines. Outfits that are versatile, fashion forward, and easy to transition from work-to-evening are usually what you will find me wearing.
