Proudest Professional Achievement and Why?
Taking a break, assessing my passions and strengths and ultimately leaving corporate for entrepreneurship.

Proudest Personal Achievement and Why?
My three boys are pretty incredible little people, I’m seriously proud to be their momma. Also, surviving the times I’ve stayed home to care for them full-time.

Three words someone else would use to describe me:
creative, care-giver, resourceful

I consider a day a success if:
I’ve managed to balance all the aspects of my life: home and family, work and self-care.

The toughest challenge I’ve ever faced is:
Running a half-marathon – not the race as much as (mostly) staying dedicated to the training for it!
