What's your mantra? 

I am made perfectly imperfect.  


Favorite book (current or all time)? 

Favorite books: Any Enneagram book & Debbie Ford’s “Dark Side of the Light Chasers” + currently reading "Hello Fears" by Michelle Poler


How do you live inspired? 

I believe there is always room to better ourselves. I try to live mindfully and authentically, trust my intuition, lean into faith over fear, and ask myself how I can be of service to others.


What is one tip or advice you would give our community to help them live an inspired life? 

You’ve got to be true to yourself and take thoughtful risks. Nobody walks in your shoes and so only you know what is best for you. Go after that dream, live your life purposefully, and always know that the universe has your back.
