Age: 40


Home: Hermosa Beach, California


Job: Vice president of sales and marketing for a promotions company


Family: Married to Jason, with a daughter, Hailey, 3,  and a son, Ryley, 23 months


I’d define my style as…
Almost business casual―almost meaning that when I want to look business professional, I almost achieve it.


My morning routine consists of…
Makeup: Three minutes.
Clothes: Three to five attempts at an outfit.


Other people would describe me as…
“She means well but tries to do too much and thinks everything has to be perfect.”


I would describe myself as…
Someone who’s achieved a lot that I should be―and am―proud of, but doesn’t find time to appreciate all she has.


I exercise…
Never―unless you consider running up and down stairs exercise!


I am good at…
Making sure my kids know every day how much I love them. And driving my husband crazy―he thinks I’m a nag!


One thing that’s currently on my to-do list―but might not get done―is…
Pack the kids’ lunches for school the night before.


One thing that’s on my to-do-one-day list is…
Prepare the recipes from Deceptively Delicious so I can provide healthy, nutritious meals for my kids instead of mac-and-cheese and noodles with butter.
