A Little About Me

I Grew Up In…

Madison, New Jersey – a beautiful suburb of Northern New Jersey about 30-35 minutes outside of New York City. It’s such a shame NJ gets a bad rap at times as there are many beautiful places in this Garden State.  

Hobbies

Traveling, reading, yoga, hiking, writing, organizing, and spa days! 

Favorite Books/Movie/Music/Foods/Band/etc.

Dark Chocolate – the darker the better

I’m Known For…

Being a visionary and innovator

One Person I Wish I Could Meet or Could Have Met

My mother’s father and father’s mother. I also wish I could meet (again) one of my favorite cousins I lost at a young age. 

Something I’m Very Proud Of

Becoming a registered dietitian-nutritionist as the process was a challenging one and being able to turn a hobby into a fulfilling career. 

The Craziest Thing I’ve Ever Done

Moved across the country where I lived for 2 months and realized I made a huge mistake only to move back to Arizona shortly thereafter without a place to live or a job. This was a tough lesson, but one that I am forever grateful for as I learned a lot about life and myself!

An Important Thing I Learned as a Child or Teen

Always always always tell the truth!
