Tell us about your family:
I have been married to my awesome husband Mike, a business owner, for twelve years. Together we have a seven year old son and a two year old little girl.
In my spare time I enjoy:
Running- currently training for a half marathon this fall! Spending time with my family on our boat, remodeling our house.
People describe me as: Strong, determined, caring, outgoing, friendly.
Special Talents?: I love to sing and have been trained in opera, musical theater and jazz.
Famous Moments: I spent a couple years as a professional extra and played a police officer and a nurse on a few season's of NBC's 'Grimm.' I've also been on 'The Librarians' and modeled for Columbia Sportswear, Adidas, Microsoft, Ford, and Lucy Activewear.
Something unique or quirky about you?:
I can imitate almost any famous person- I do the funny voice and everything!
What is your personal philosophy:
It's never too late to become what you might have been.
Why is this important to you?:
People so easily lose sight of the possibilities because they think there is nothing left for them. But if that goal was on your heart there was a reason for it, and there is always the opportunity to harness that feeling of why it was so precious to you and find it again.
Your best asset?: My smile!
As a woman of empowerment, what is your "Magic"?:
I am something of an empath (probably why I'm in my profession); I can connect with people easily and understand how they're feeling. My message to other women is to keep your mind on the light at the end of the tunnel but your eyes on moving forward one step at a time. Dreams can be achieved and healing can happen!

What is your favorite family recipe?: My favorite Christmas cocktail: champagne, cognac and a splash of grenadine.
What is your guilty pleasure?: Girl Scout Cookies. Any flavor.

Favorite Family Ritual?: Heading out in the car for a drive in the forest outside Portland.

I just learned: That cashew milk is yummy!

Complete this sentence: Success Requires… ...a lot of hard work and focus.

Favourite Drink: Sugar free Rockstar
Favourite thing about yourself: Eternally optimistic
Best advice you’ve ever been given: Before my last big race, a 200 mile relay- "If you get tired don't stop, just slow down but always keep running. You can speed up again when you're ready." Great advice for both running and life.
Anything bad happening to my kids.
Lover or Fighter: Definitely full of love!
I'm pretty good at jeopardy!

Runner's high; hanging out with my kids.
The thing about yourself you would like to change?:
I'd like to be able to turn my brain off and sleep better!
