One piece of advice you would give your 18 year old self:
Patience, my dear. If you’re too anxious about the future, you’re going to miss out on the good things that are right in front of you.
Your go-to power outfit:
For industry events, I have an amazing black silk jumpsuit. It’s gorgeous and classic but totally unexpected in a sea of jackets and LBDs.
The beauty product found in your bag at all times:

Nail color currently on your hands and feet:
I discovered CND Shellac in Lobster Roll this summer. It’s a perfect poppy mix of red and pink that goes with everything.
Your last takeout order:
I could live on Thai food alone. We get fresh spring rolls and pad thai or a curry at least once a week.
Favorite pizza topping:

Cocktail of choice:
I’ve been on a Campari kick for awhile, so a Negroni or an Americano (the drink, not the coffee, though I like those too).
Your most quirky characteristic:
I get excited about just about everything, big or small. It could be a donut Friday in the office or a cute face my dog is making, and chances are I will make a scene.
