What is your hometown?
New York City - born and raised 


What inspires you?
The badass women that come to modelFIT - balance their careers, family, life and find time to take care of themselves and the people around them. They are superwomen! 


What are the biggest challenges of being your own boss/the work that you do?
Finding balance, and delegating responsibility so I don't burn out. I try to take on a lot myself, but luckily I have an amazing team that takes initiative and pushes me to be a better leader and business owner. 

Get comfortable with the uncomfortable - in life and business. That's how you grow.



What’s the best advice you’ve ever gotten?
Get comfortable with the uncomfortable - in life and business. That's how you grow. 


What is your process when approaching your work?
I really follow my intuition and inner compass when it comes to making the right decisions for my business as well as making the right decisions for my life. I'm very fortunate to have a supportive and loving community around me that keeps me focused and offers advice and guidance when I need it.


When do you feel most empowered?
When I make time in the day for work and I'm there for my team, and I also make time for myself - working out and eating right, and I'm home in time to make dinner and be there for my loved ones. All in one day! Balance makes me feel empowered.  


Where do you go in NYC to unwind?
Home! My apartment is my creative nest / happy place.  


What’s your biggest guilty pleasure (life’s all about balance after all!)?
 Red Wine! Especially after a long week. 


How are you #livingLIVELY? 
Striving to be my best self each and every day!
