Best Known For:
- My relentless editing skills. The “track changes” function is my very best friend.
- Insane research abilities. Give me 30 seconds and a web connection, and I’ll find anything you need to know.
- A ridiculously large shoe collection. I am a Zappo’s VIP member for life.
Taking the helm at Zenzi, and realizing that a combination of inspiration, hard work and heart will get you everything you’ve ever wanted. Thriving in a professional environment dominated by men, and realizing that not only could I hold my own, but could teach the boys a thing or two. The fun stuff: launching a product, securing a huge placement, spearheading a big idea that changed everything. The best part? Watching a creative concept come to life.
Being a mom, no question. It’s the biggest honor of my life.
Secrets to My Success:
A complete lack of complacency. Is it a good idea? Make it better. Reached a goal? Make a bigger one. Once I stopped looking for a finish line, the journey became much more fun.
Big, Crazy Dream:
Re-learning how to sail, and taking off for parts unknown.
If I Could, I Would Tour With:
Foo Fighters. If you need another reason other than their music, check this out: http://bit.ly/k3dkAK.
U2 Joshua Tree. All time best.
Cheez-its and wine for dinner.
Women Who Rock:
Julia Child is my role model and personal hero. She was a true adventurer, busting through barriers and making it look easy. She approached everything with incredible joie de vivre and humor, and was the coolest in every way. Plus, her Beef Bourguignon recipe rocks everyone’s socks off.
