What do I do best?

Going with the flow and not allowing things to bring me down or get to me. I no longer get crazy upset if something doesn’t go as planned, nor do I bat an eyelid if there is traffic. I am told often how much others notice this quality in me.

What makes me the best version of myself?

My tenacity. I’ve had an incredible amount of “no’s” in my career and every time I get told I can’t do something, or my mind momentarily believes it, I power forward. I’ve accomplished nearly every single thing I have wanted to.

What are my aspirations?

A huge personal goal that I have (which is in plan) is to be based out of Paris, Bali and Los Angeles. I’ve traveled the world and have found that these three places feel like home for me, so why decide on just one? :) And a business goal is to eventually own a restaurant and to work with congress to improve school lunches for kids.  

My Biggest Success?

Oh gosh! This is hard to choose because I’m so proud of many different things in my life. I’m proud of everything from my meditation practice, to overcoming two eating disorders, to signing a 2-book deal with Random House. All of these are huge successes!

My Most Challenging Moment?

This book launch has been quite challenging in general because things have not been flowing as smoothly as I planned or hoped. What I’ve learned is to let go of what I believe should happen, accept what does, and adjust my sails as necessary. I call it a Plot Twist. It’s really shown me  how much my meditation practice is in effect and the beauty that it’s had on my life.  

My Motto?

Never judge others because you never know what they are going through. This is a motto because we are all going through something at any given point and you never know how others handle stress, heartbreak, or anger. Showing love to all beings is the universal law to create a happier life for yourself.

My Favorite People/Role Models?

I’ve always looked up to Oprah (And hope to meet her one day) because I’m so in awe of what she’s created while being authentic to herself, her audience, what she’s helped create.

My Favorite Places/Destinations?

Amalfi coast is one of my favorite places on earth, along with hiking in Wanaka, New Zealand, and sunsets in Mykonos + Santorini, Greece.

My Favorite Products/Objects?

I love my Vitamix because it does everything in the kitchen (although I’d love to try a thermomix) and I also love my passport… because it takes me all over the world. Oh, and Global Entry because it’s necessary when traveling back to the US!

My Current Passions?

Travel! I’m so excited to travel extensively this upcoming summer to learn about new cultures and to take a step away from work for a bit. The book launch was very intense so now I get to take a step back, go into learning mode and just explore life.
