What Else To Know

Tell Us More:

How will you stay the best?

Great question! For me it’s about showing up as the best version of myself I can daily. Some days it comes easily and others it can be a struggle. I find as long as I do my best each day, it all comes together. Becoming the best also involves me having the courage to face fears and get comfortable with being uncomfortable sometimes. It’s also learning to accept and learn from my failures.

What fascinates you?

All the way back to childhood, I’ve been most fascinated with people and their personal stories. The good, the bad and the ugly! It’s incredible to look inside someone else’s world and hear and understand their personal journey. So yes, people fascinate me more than anything else!
