WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT YOUR JOB?
I love the freedom and flexibility that comes from working for myself. I also get to meet so many awesome women and it makes all the hard work so so worth it.
WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?
For a long time it used to be “always pack snacks,” while I still abide by that I think I’m digging “curiosity over judgement.”
WHAT WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU LEARNED IN HIGH SCHOOL?
WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST PET PEEVE?
The sound of people eating can really get to me. So silly!
WHAT DO YOU WEAR THAT MAKES YOU FEEL STRONG?
If I really want to fee like a boss, I’ll rock a blazer and fresh sneakers.
WHAT IS ON YOUR NIGHTSTAND?
An essential oil diffuser, a picture of my best friend and I, a lamp and usually some hair ties.
WHAT GIVES YOU GOOSE BUMPS?
SO many things. Especially if I hear a really good song I get them all the time.
WHAT IS YOUR BAD DAY BACKUP PLAN?
The Office is a life saver. It’s comfort and comedy.
HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS?
I think Maya Angelou said it best, “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.”
BEST ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED?
Don’t be afraid of the time it will take to do something you want to do, the time will pass anyway.
WHAT WOMAN HAS INSPIRED YOU THE MOST AND WHY?
My older sister has been my beacon my entire life. I don’t know who I’d be without her.
WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT BARRIER TO FEMALE LEADERSHIP?
Our culture needs to value the power of femininity (in both men and women) so that women can show up as their full selves and be respected. This will be huge for men, too. We all have masculine and feminine and I believe that feminism isn’t just about equality of gender but equality and respect of both the masculine and feminine in all of us.
WHAT MAKES YOU FORGET TO EAT?
These days a lot of things, but definitely anything really creative like painting, drawing or photo editing.
WHAT DID YOUR 8-YEAR-OLD SELF LOVE DOING?
She loved writing and illustrating her own stories.
Resilience. It’s truly beautiful to me and reminds me that we are far more capable than we know.
FAVORITE WORK OF ART?
I love all of Gaudí’s architecture in Barcelona. It’s all so captivating and organic and magical.
I love the Harry Potter books. The characters, the lessons the world she created. It really never gets old.
