Every day I strive to live life to the fullest, to be present in every moment, to enjoy every sip of my morning coffee and my super healthy smoothie (I’m trying!). I love connecting with others and nurturing relationships everywhere I go. Those who possess true greatness and talent, yet are kind and humble at heart, inspire me the most. I can break a dance move in my living-room along with my two funny (they get it from mom) and beautiful daughters, Kalea and Nya, for hours! After a full day, I look forward to coaxing my loving husband to watch international movies with me. Life is good!
