I am originally from New Orleans but grew up mostly in Katy right outside of Houston. I moved to Austin for my first job out of college (so lucky!) about 4 years ago.
Basic Family Stats:
I just married my wonderful husband, Al, in May of this year. We have two dog children: Enzo, 140 lb Rottweiler, and Daisy, 5 lb long hair chihuahua.
I started a new job this year doing pharmaceutical sales. Prior to that I worked as a child nutritionist for 4 years.
The biggest lesson I have learned through my iGnite experience…
The importance of being a part of a good community of women. When I first moved to Austin, I didn’t have any girlfriends so being a part of iGnite and knowing all of these amazing, successful, positive women has been a great influence.
I am most inspired by…
This is a toughie because I feel like I am inspired daily by a million different people and things. The one I am most inspired by right now is my husband…He got a neurotoxin poison on our honeymoon from eating fish and has been struggling for several months with lingering neurological side effects. Through it all, he has been determined to work to provide for us, strong with a smile on his face even though I know he doesn’t feel well, and has still been a wonderful husband to me, always somehow keeping me and my happiness a priority. His ambition, will and love has been inspiring as I look to the future and know, that even in the hardest times, we will always make it through together.
I am looking forward to…
We are finally house hunting after greatly outgrowing our current home. I’m looking forward to finding and setting up a home for us to start married life and make memories!
My celebrity look alike is…
I think I have one of those faces that resembles a lot of people. I am always getting ‘you look like my sister, aunt, friend…’ I’ve heard from others my celebrity look alike is Carmen Elektra.
