What makes a place special to you?
For me, experiencing a place doesn’t become truly special until I’ve shared it with someone else I care about. My favorite special places are my parents house in Georgetown, Versailles in France, and our family’s ranch in West Texas. I also hold a special place in my heart for the Dallas Design District, which I was a part of creating and marketing early in my career.
How do you like to spend your summers?
Summer is my favorite time of year. We go on an annual beach trip to Galveston with my husband’s family. I also love spending time at the swimming pool with my almost two year old, Annabelle. I have been a pool rat my whole life and worked as a lifeguard and swim instructor every summer in high school and college.
I love to entertain and love having parties for the summer’s patriotic holidays – Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day. I love decorating the house in red, white and blue and hosting our neighborhood friends for cookouts in the backyard.
What inspires you?
I find inspiration in so many things. I am a firm believer in being a lifetime learner; I love listening to audio books and podcasts and reading – all activities that provide a lot of inspiration. I also get inspiration from traveling and experiencing other cultures and places. I am a marketer now, but my degree is in International Studies and Spanish, so I have always fostered a strong interest in learning from others not just locally but from around the world.
