  • How would you describe your personality in 5 words or less.
    • I am ambitious, energetic, loyal, positive and focused.

Tell us a little about yourself! Where are you from and what’s your story?

  • I’m an Arizona native. My entire family went to The University of Arizona so where did I decide to go? Well, their biggest rival, Arizona State, of course. I graduated from The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication with a focus in Strategic Media and Public Relations and a minor in Business. My degree, motivation and natural “OCD-ness” has helped me excel in multitasking with focus and efficiency. Every day I try to work on improving myself while recognizing and appreciating others and building the relationships with the important people in my life.
  • What could we find you doing outside of the office? What are your passions?
    • I have a healthy nature that has always been driven by my love for all things fitness, especially running. I’ll admit that I’m one of those crazy marathon runners. I love overcoming such a physically and mentally exhausting challenge. I’m proud to say I’ve ran two half marathons and six full marathons; 2 of which were the Boston Marathon.
  • Please explain your vision board below and what it means to you.
    • I hope to  qualify for the Boston Marathon and run it again.
    • I would love to own property of my own.
    • I want to find success in business and make valuable contributions.
    • I hope to travel somewhere, or multiple places, abroad.

  • If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?
      • I’d love the chance to sit down and talk with Elon Musk. I think he is fascinating and truly changing the world. I also have a lot of respect for Sheryl Sandberg.  
    • If you were reincarnated as an animal/drink/ice cream flavor, what would it be?
      • As an animal, I would be a bird. It would be amazing to fly.
      • As a drink, I would be an iced cold lemonade; simple, yet refreshing.
      • As an ice cream flavor, I would be non-dairy chocolate hard serve from The Ice Cream Cafe in Cape Cod, MA. I would make so many people happy!
  • If you could travel anywhere in the world right now where would you go and what would you do?
      • The Amalfi Coast in Italy. It is a magical place that I was fortunate enough to visit once but did not spend enough time! I would eat pizza while sipping prosecco by the ocean.
  • You just won a million dollars, what is the most irresponsible purchase you’re going to make?
      • A crazy vacation for myself and all my family and friends.
  • What’s your favorite YouTube video and why?
    • I can’t think of one video that pops out, well this might be strange, but I like pimple popping videos. I’m also a sucker for cute animal videos.


  • On a serious note, what are you most looking forward to learning from StringCan?
      • I’m looking forward to being part of a team who deeply cares about their clients, and each other’s, success. I’m excited to learn how StringCan effectively grows the business while staying true to their values.
  • What will clients enjoy most about working with you?
      • I’m detailed, thoughtful and will always do whatever I can to ensure success.
  • What do results mean to you?
      • Results are defined by exceeding expectations, client happiness and company growth.
  • What is your proudest accomplishment and why?
    • Qualifying for the Boston Marathon,  running it and beating my own personal record.  It helped me realize I am capable of anything and sometimes mental hurdles can be your biggest obstacles.
