How did you end up in San Diego and what do you love about it?
I was originally born in San Diego, raised in Alabama, and decided the West Coast was the best coast to live my life. I cherish the diversity and love that comes from the environment that surrounds me every day. Weather is perfect, and the ocean is never ending.
What gets you most excited about life?
People. I love the energy of positive people. I love helping and being a part of a community that loves one another.
In your profession, what makes your business stand out and how has it changed your life?
Customer Service is the key to business. It may take time to become successful in the first few years, but your service means everything.
How would friends describe you?
My friends would describe me as loyal and loving. I am always the life of the environment, no matter what the situation may be.
What or who really makes you laugh and why?
My family… I think we could make a reality series on the shenanigans that we all seem to get ourselves into. We travel in packs of 18-20, so you never know what piece of chocolate you are going to get.
Who inspires you in life to do your very best and why?
My Poppa, he never judges, he just says do your best and everything will come to you. He always tells me he is proud of his baby girl (although I am 41). No matter who your enemies are, they don’t matter. He always says, “SO WHAT?”
If you could witness any event of the past, present, or future, what would it be and why?
I would want to be at the “I have a Dream” speech in Washington D.C. I have been to the monument and the memorial, and I can just feel the love and energy.
If you could give someone advice about your art, hobby, or business, what would you tell them?
Always, live your dream. Don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot or that you are a failure. You only fail if you don’t try.
What are your top five values you live by?
Love, Trust, Understanding, Gratitude, Empathy
Gratitude is so important in each of our lives, what are you most grateful for, and how do you pay it forward?
I am most grateful for the life that I have lived and the life that I will continue to live. It has taught me to never take anything for granted and always keep moving. I will pay it forward, by sharing my stories and giving all that I can to those that need it most.
