I find my inspiration from… “My children. As parents, we have a lot to teach our children, but they also teach me and inspire me every single day. They constantly remind me what it’s like to be young and carefree, to explore, and to be excited to learn new things.”
When I was growing up, I wanted to be… “A flight attendant. It’s the dream – you fly all around the world for free and get to sleep in fancy hotels.”
My guilty pleasure is… “Collecting designer handbags!”
