My dream vacation: If I could smash Amsterdam and Anguilla together, that would be my dream vacation. I loved Amsterdam for the architecture and charm, but Anguilla for the chance to unplug from everything. No phones, no tvs. Just white sand beaches and jewel colored water.
Favorite quote: 'If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.’
My favorite thing about working at Buzz Creators: The opportunities to give clients what they are looking for, and what they didn’t realize they were looking for.
If I had $1 million dollars to spend: I’d go on that dream vacation I talked about, and I would make sure my girls future was taken care of.
My hobbies are… Driving my girls to soccer. Watching my girls play soccer. Cheering for my girls at soccer. Washing clothes from soccer… Do you sense a trend? HA! I love watching my girls spend time doing something they love, surrounded by friends they love. If it’s not that, I love to read.
