Hometown: Boston, MA

First job: Le Chateau. A store from Montreal. At the time, it was the place to be.

Favorite ways to spend your free time in CA: With family, my girls, my friends and being outside or you can usually find me at a Soul Cycle class with my friend and best instructor, Edward.

Your biggest accomplishment and why: My biggest accomplishment is me. Being positive, learning and growing and learning how to truly love myself. When ParrishLA merged with Rachel Zoe Inc. and we all became partners, it was a dream come true. I love working with my chosen family and creating and executing vision for the brands.

The biggest obstacle you overcame: The biggest obstacle that I overcame was and is feeling confident in myself! It’s a daily routine, but owning a business, being a parent and a friend while trying to maintain balance is nearly impossible.

Someone who inspires you and why: I get my inspiration everywhere. Mostly from the people that I am surrounded by at work and my family.

Advice to someone pursuing a career path in what you do: Never, ever quit! Write down your goals and remember them when you want to give up because if you love and believe in what you do, it will work.

Favorite quote: Anything by Rumi or Joan Didion.

Something someone would be surprised to learn about you: That I am quite introverted.

What makes someone fabulous: Being themselves. Authentic, honest and someone who takes the time to listen and really see someone. You can tell, look out for it!
