What do you love most about your work?

I love reading the notes and posts from our customers – it feels amazing to know our brand has such an impact on people.

One piece of advice you would give your 18 year old self:

Assume the best of people and expect the best from yourself.

The beauty product found in your bag at all times:

Dior black mascara. I’ve tried others but always come back to the classic.

Charity you support:

I’m very proud to serve on the board of Project Glimmer. We donate jewelry and beauty products to young girls and women who otherwise wouldn’t receive anything over the holidays.

Your current Netflix addiction:

Friends. I am probably the only person in the world who has never watched it!

Midnight snack of choice:

Cereal. But then again, I could eat cereal at any meal and I’d be happy.

Your go-to power outfit:

Pencil skirt, Jimmy Choos, button up, and Warby Parker glasses. (I don’t need glasses but wearing them always makes me feel like I’m in power mode!)

The trend you hope never goes out of style:

 Clean, styled ponytail. I wear my hair in a ponytail almost every day.

Your favorite restaurant for brunch and your go-to order:

 I’m obsessed with chilaquiles and even did a chilaquiles tour of SF to find the best! (In case you’re looking, they are at the Primavera food truck at the SF Farmers Market.)

Cocktail of choice:

Pimms Cup in the summer and Mulled Wine in the winter.
