What do you love most about your work?
Creating a product that adds a touch of quality to people’s lives while improving their health and overall wellness. Business built around improving the lives of others. I also like being my own boss.
Skincare product you can’t live without:
Facial oil because my skin gets really dry. I swear by Josie Maran’s 100% Argan oil.
Your motto in life:
Set a goal and go get it, take it all. No one is going to hand it to you.
The beauty product found in your bag at all times:
Lip gloss. I’m not too picky on the brand, but it must be sheer.
The pair of jeans you will never grow tired of:
Nail color currently on your hands and feet:
Charity/charities you support:
I support a variety of charities, specifically those that help make the world a better, more beautiful place. I’m currently creating a tea that will benefit breast cancer research, inspired by two of my aunts who are survivors.
Your (real life) hero and why:
My parents. They were both entrepreneurs and somehow managed to accomplish everything they set out to do in life, while loving every moment. They are the type of people I strive to be and my inspiration to live my life to the fullest every day.
Cocktail of choice:
A tea-infused cocktail. My cousin created the most amazing cocktail that he serves at his bar: Hendricks Gin, Big T NYC Baby it’s Cold Outside organic black tea-infused syrup, fresh lemon and lavender. It’s complex, delicious and (bonus!) has healthy antioxidants.
Your longest lasting friendship?
Celia Grebs. We’ve been best friends since kindergarten, and she was my first business partner (we started a jewelry making business in the fifth grade). We have very different lives now, and live on opposite sides of the country, but share a special bond that comes from life long friendship, which I absolutely cherish.
