Insider Info

Domestic status: Wife to a HOT comic book Illustrator (they do exist) and Mom to two adorable, energetic little boys.

Favorite wedding-related movie: Philadelphia Story. Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn…what more could you want?

Extracurricular activities: Taking my boys to the playground, running on the beach, event planning, discovering new restaurants and bars, traveling, spending time with family and friends.

Source of inspiration: My Mom. She worked full time and raised three crazy kids. She is proof that you can have as close to “it all” as possible. She also sees the good in every person—it’s an amazing trait to have.

Most unrealistic life goal: To be an Independently Wealthy Goddess globetrotting around the world.

Guilty pleasure: Reality TV. I have an unhealthy relationship with BRAVO TV and Andy Cohen.

Celebrity I would most like to have a one-on-one date with: Dwayne Douglas Johnson, aka The Rock. (Have you seen The Scorpion King? He is HOT!)

Favorite way to wind down after a hard day: A long workout at the gym, dinner with my husband and son, and an episode of Real Housewives

What pushes my panic button: When I’m not able to get everything done on my daily to-do list.

New Year’s resolution: I hate New Year’s resolutions. If there’s something I need to change about myself, I just do it. Why wait for January 1st?

Dream vacation spot: Fiji. I’ve always wanted to stay in a hut over the water.

Work space décor: Cute office supplies from and family photos.

Favorite culinary aphrodisiac: Sushi. It’s usually what my husband and I go out for on date night.

Theme song: “This Girl Is On Fire” by Alicia Keys.

What I like most about my job: I love helping my clients boost their business and I feel so lucky to be able to work with an amazing group of talented, smart, funny and authentic women. They’re not just my co-workers, we’re a sisterhood!
