My Pet Peeve:
Pessimists/Negative people. They can suck the life right out of you if you let them.
Getting pedicures with my girlfriends, shopping and purses
Grew up in the small town of Bellbrook, Ohio. A strong, nurturing and supportive family unit, I am an only child—I always wanted an older sister or brother!
Busy, Challenging and Fulfilling
My daughters. I love both of their unique personalities. I am just trying to hold on to every moment of them growing up.
There are so many great movies—Grease, Top Gun, The Notebook, The Hangover
My Quote on Life:
“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
My Purses, and my BlackBerry
My Advice to Young Women:
Make a commitment to network and connect with high achieving women on a regular basis—learn everything you can from them. Be a good listener/observer. Also, do what you LOVE, don’t settle for anything less.
How I Balance it All:
Am I balancing it all?! HA! It is a day-to-day challenge. I am extremely fortunate that my parents live close by. I count on them for so much!! My husband is a huge help too. He is always willing to step in and help out. I have always been very disciplined and organized-at home and at work. My daughters would probably tell you I am organized to the extreme! But, I think you have to be in order to hold it all together in this fast-paced, crazy, over-scheduled world we live in.
