What is your WHY?
My family. I want to my kids to see a strong mother who tries her best to balance family, friendships, working, and giving back to the community. I want my husband to feel supported and appreciated and I want to feel fulfilled myself. It’s hard to balance life but I hope my family sees me trying to give it my best shot!
How did COVID-19 impact your business and family life?
It definitely made us slow down (way down for a while!) and appreciate time together more. We have come out of it learning that it’s ok to say “no”; not take on too much and make smarter choices with our time.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received as a woman throughout your career?
Always look at the company. As a woman, I think this is even more important. How is the business run? What are the company values; do they align with yours? How do they treat their employees? I truly believe the best companies are those that put their employees first.
Do you have a hidden talent?
I’ve been know to drop a pretty mean “worm” on the dance floor. 😂
What’s one shopping trend we could all live without?
Socks with flip flops.
How do you strike a balance between trendy and timeless?
Neutrals! Black, white and tan.
What trend should people keep in mind while shopping for next year?
Layering! Wraps and layering jackets - watch out for these this Fall!
#1 style tip for getting dressed in the morning?
Dress for yourself. If you’re comfortable and dress for your own style, you’ll feel great and be confident all day!
#1 thing to have in your closet right now?
With Summer coming up, a good pair of white denim is a MUST!
What do you do or say to your children to inspire them? How did your own parents inspire you?
My boys are 5 and 6. Before school each day we remind them “be kind, use your manners, have fun, and be a leader” and we hope we are examples of that for them.
