Signature handbag: I love the animal print/skin look, and always have to carry a bag large enough for my purse contents, a few files, and my laptop since I am constantly working on-the-go or traveling.
Favorite addition to spring wardrobe: My go-to way to enhance my wardrobe is always bright, bold statement pieces and pops of color.
Most sentimental possession: Photos and notes from my family, and special pieces of jewelry from my husband or passed down from family members
Your Instagram in five words or less: Fitness, clients, outgoing, social, family, travel
Favorite travel destination: Love warm beach destinations and of course, always – Las Vegas; I love it for the energy, nightlife, fascinating hotels, and fabulous food, drinks, and shows.
Where you traveled last: To the Russian River Valley in CA for a gorgeous destination wedding, and Spring Break ski trip to Beaver Creek with my husband, kids, and several other families.
Last thing you Googled: Magazine editors for an event invitation
What would our readers be surprised to know about you: I was a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader for 2 seasons in 2000-2002!
What is in your bag now: A little bit of everything – I’m a Mommy, Business Woman, and go 100 mph all day long, so I have to keep everything I need for the day close and at quick grasp. I typically carry large bags that can accommodate a variety of smaller totes and clutches to grab-and-go.
Most coveted item from the vintage contessa: Wow – the authentic Hermes 35cm Birkin Bag in Tri Color in Taurillon Clemence with gold hardware is quite a stunner! I love it because it’s classic, has a neutral color palate, and has pure luxury written all over it.
