What do you do best?:

Laugh at myself. I realize that life is short and it’s much easier to enjoy each day (and mistake) by laughing at myself.

What makes you the best version of yourself?:

My faith. It pushes me to grow and be better.

What are your aspirations? (Personal and Business):

I really enjoy watching Kathie Lee. I’d love to be in a similar position one day. Making people laugh in the mornings.

Biggest Success?:

Likely fighting my way in to newsrooms without a degree.

Most Challenging Moment?:

Being let go from a job that I really loved. But again, I laughed at myself… I turned it in to a joke and rebounded better than ever.

Motto?:

Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.

Favorite People/Role Models?:

Too many to list but I love and admire Nancy Grace (who helped me immensely in my career aspirations), Dateline’s Josh Mankiewicz, Leland Vittert, Marianne McClary, Jimmy Fallon, and Kathie Lee Gifford.

Favorite Places/Destinations?:

Even though I grew up in Scottsdale, Arizona – it always feels like a vacation when I go home to visit my family. The dry heat. The pools. The luxury.

Favorite Products/Objects?:

In this business, I’ve found that Nick Chavez hair products are a life saver. I love Spanx. I also love a good pair of fake eyelashes.

Current Passions?:

I’ve really developed a joy for updating my blog and creating content specifically for my social media audience.
