EXECUTIVE DECISIONS

If your business/career could speak, what would it say?

It would say, "we've been on an incredible, unpredictable, and exciting journey. There is so much more magic to explore and create".

How do you balance your professional and personal life?

I balance my professional and personal life by being true to how I operate and not compromising my wellbeing for superficial glory. I am a strong believer that when I take care of my body and mind, my professional work shines. I am a big believer in having grit, working my ass off and rewarding myself for the effort.

What is one boss move you have made throughout your career that you are most proud of?

Leaving a professional environment that was toxic to my soul for a life that has brought me nothing but joy and happiness.

UP CLOSE + PERSONAL

How do you relate to Ronny Kobo as a woman and how does the brand speak to you?

I love how Ronny Kobo designs for the natural curvature of a woman's body. Her clothing fits me in all the right places and makes me feel ready to take on what's ahead. As fellow female entrepreneur, I respect full heartedly that Ronny Kobo is a female run/female run brand.

Where is your favorite spot to step out with your girls?

I love trying new places! I do not have one particular spot that I frequent. A night out with my girls means having fun and switching it up no matter where we are.

How do you define sexy?

Sexy is when an individual is confident, secure and self-sufficient.

What is one thing you are insecure about, and how do you work to overcome it?

I struggle with being spontaneous and I feel slightly embarrassed by my need for certainty. I am working to overcome it by putting myself in a path that forces me to trust the amazing and unpredictable timing of my life. My insecurities are riddled with contradictions and while to many that may be overwhelming, I find that reality to be an exciting challenge, one that forces me to grow and develop as a woman.

In a sisterhood/friendship, what is the one thing you find most important to maintain a healthy and strong relationship?

Honesty and responsibility. I feel responsible to ask my friends hard questions and support them on their journeys. I feel blessed to have a beautiful community of people who do the same for me.
