What’s your idea of perfect happiness?
I don’t believe in perfect, but my favorite moments of happiness are when I am fully in the moment connected to people, music, nature or writing. So, a glass of wine with a friend, reading a book while the sunsets, dancing to music with my instructors or sons. That kinda stuff makes me super happy!
Who do you most admire?
I admire people who are innovative and brave. Individuals who blaze their own paths through their work and passion to affect positive change. I admire people who don’t settle, who are authentic, and who inspire others. I also think that being intellectual, creative and having a great sense of humor is the best combination. I totally admire that!
If you could have your favorite song lyrics tattooed on you, what would they be?
Oh boy. Don’t tempt me and don’t think I haven’t thought about this before! It would be impossible for me to have a favorite song. I love music too much to play favorites. While I love many inspirational songs, if it were a tattoo it would have to be something that is meant to serve as a reminder, like being brave, being true to one’s self, finding peace, giving love, etc. Something like Sia’s “don’t give up. free to be the greatest."
If your life were a song, what would the title be?
Potential in the pedal
How would you describe your fashion style?
What are you most excited about in life right now?
Watching who my boys become - their passions, their friendships, and their work and play. And, JoyRide - how we continue to grow and evolve to spread more JOY!
What’s your best Halloween costume?
Probably Olivia Newton John. Let’s Get Physical.
How would your friends describe you?
Thoughtful, driven, energetic, creative, fun, outgoing but shy, passionate.
Do you have a favorite charity? What is it / why?
Yes I do! Catch A Lift. I recently became involved in a charity for post 9/11 Vets and it has changed my life and perspective on our freedoms as a nation and the bravery of the men and women who serve our country. My passion for this organization is directly correlated with the personal relationships I have built with those a part of CAL and the Vets who have courageously shared their stories and their nightmares of PTSD and the loss of their “brothers” on the battlefield and to suicide at home. These relationships are profound because they are so raw and real and the work that CAL does is so very important and life changing for the Vets who served and need a corner of support and gratitude and rehabilitation. I am proud and honored to be a part of it.
Additionally, I am also invested in Shatterproof to end the stigma of addiction and raise awareness for treatment. Similarly, my involvement in this organization has introduced me to incredibly brave people who share their journeys to help others. It’s so inspiring.
