What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy planning and engaging in international travel, rollercoasters, Disneyland, beach activities with my family, competing with my dad and deepsea fishing. My favorite ride is Tatsu at Six Flags, but my favorite place to be is Disneyland.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your mental and emotional well-being?

My core values are always aligned with being my authentic self, advocating for others, and practicing what I preach by engaging in community activities that matter to me. Even when we face difficult times, we can be the amazing in our world. I translate that into my practice by helping you embrace your value, finding and keeping your voice, and helping you identify ways you can make every day more meaningful, purposeful, and amazing.

Do you have any pets?

I have two dogs, LunaBella and Bandit and a gecko, Sunshine. Luna is my pup and Bandit is my daughter's. One day I was dropping my daughter and Bandit off and I told Luna and Bandit to say bye-bye, they both looked at each other then both looked at me, ears up as if to say, "WHAT? Not yet!" It was comical.
