I am a true Las Vegas native. I have a BA in Criminal Justice and a BA in Psychology from UNLV. I also have an MBA with an emphasis in Servant Leadership from Grand Canyon University. While enrolled in the MBA program, I got to study under Ken Blanchard directly – I’ve even been to his house several times!

I am second generation. I have literally done every job there is to do. I started as a certificate tech, then became an assistant, and progressed to an Account Executive, and from there, I was a producer. I even owned my own agency for several years before selling to BBC. I have been very involved in a lot of trade associations and have written quite a few nationally published articles. I also sit on the NV DOI Agent Advisory Council. I am a natural-born problem solver. I love finding solutions to challenges and creating win-win scenarios. I also am a bit of an early adopter so I am always looking for new products, approaches, and technology to test out.

I hate being cold and am convinced that I am secretly a lizard on the inside. You can find me most weekends romping through the desert or cooling off in a swimming pool with my family and friends. I am sort of a human jukebox – I know a ridiculous amount of lyrics to songs in just about every genre. I am also great at pop culture trivia and love to scrapbook all of my adventures. From hiking to exploring ghost towns to pedal biking on a railroad. My absolute favorite thing in the world to do, though, is go to Vegas Golden Knights games. Go Knights GO!

I have volunteered and served on many boards throughout the years, but my favorite cause to support is women’s empowerment. We still have a very long way to go in terms of gender equality and equity. For that reason, the Women’s Research Institute of Nevada will always hold a special place in my heart.
