How do you define success? Success to me is having the means to do what I want, when I want. Also feeling carefree because all is right with my mind, body, spirit, health and family.

Biggest Success: I can’t say that I’ve had my biggest success yet …  My biggest accomplishment to date is my current brand/personal #reset. I’ve worked with top entertainers from Mariah Carey to Whitney Houston to Jill Scott and scored media placement from every major to small outlet possible, however, I always knew there was so much more … putting it all together now. #reset.

What is your top challenge and how have you addressed it? My top challenge was giving myself, permission to live. Upon having my daughter, I suffered post-partum and felt super insecure. I literally pressed #reset in my health, career, marriage and lifestyle to get uncomfortable and stop co-starring in my own life and start living.

Who is your most important role model? My beloved grandmother who transitioned three years ago. She was my all and influenced every ounce of my being.
