The founder and CEO of Simply Gum is all about love and power dressing.

WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?

Live simply, of course.

WHAT DO YOU WEAR THAT MAKES YOU FEEL STRONG?

I’ve always loved a structured blazer and a sharp heel.

WHAT IS ON YOUR NIGHTSTAND?

A crystal heart in rose quartz, magazines, and water.

WHAT GIVES YOU GOOSE BUMPS?

Seeing a really great live performance. There’s something about the experience of having a person perform something amazing in front of you…it can be incredibly moving.

WHAT IS YOUR BAD DAY BACKUP PLAN?

Hibernating at home in front of the TV.

HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS?

Achieving your goals, whatever they may be.

BEST ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED?

Start a company. If you fail, start another one.

WHAT MAKES YOU FORGET TO EAT?

Nothing!! I literally shut down when I’m hungry.

WHAT DID YOUR 8 YEAR-OLD SELF LOVE DOING?

I loved to read. I remember spending all my time outside of school reading.

WHAT 3 THINGS WOULD YOU GRAB IN A FIRE?

Since most of my photos are now in the cloud, I’d grab my phone, jewelry box, and wallet

FAVORITE WORD?

Love, because of what it represents. I’m going through a phase right now where I’m really drawn to hearts and the word love… on bags, jewelry, art, everything.

FAVORITE BOOK?

It’s so hard to pick a favorite…but right now, I’m reading Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari. And I finally just finished Siddhartha Mukherjee’s The Emperor of All Maladies.
