What Makes YOU Feel Powerful? 

Doing things that scare me and mastering skills I never thought I would learn. I find power in a new challenge. Also, my amazing friends.

Let's talk about DREAMS! What do YOU want to be when you grow up?

My own boss. I want to run my own creative consulting agency that specializes in helping small business flourish through creative branding. I am learning so much about how a strong female brand runs with my time at The Goddess and Grocer.

Your go-to late night snack:

Cheese of any kind.

What song gets you through the last mile?

Dog Days Are Over. But really, anything Florence.

You'll never find me without my _______.

Lipstick and coffee.

What advice would you give your 21-year-old self?

If someone is willing to teach you something, listen. From a skill to a story take the time to hear them out.

A teacher or mentor that made an impact on your life:

My International Journalism teacher, Rose Economou. I traveled all over Europe and covered the blood diamond trials at The Hague with her abroad program. As an Emmy Award-winning documentary maker, she was an incredible journalist and an even better human. Her class changed the way I viewed the world.

A TED Talk that inspired you to think differently:

How to Speak So That People Want to Listen

Advice for keeping up with old friends?

Friendship is a two-way street. If you miss someone give them a call. Staying in touch can be hard - but if you make the time the reward is great.

Who are your favorite female heroes?

My grandmother. Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Daenerys Targaryen.

A new trend you want to try: (tech, food, style, etc.)

I would love to try one of those kits that test your family tree.
