Singing in the car or singing in the shower: More often the car!
Best Vacation Spot: Lake Tahoe, NV. I cannot think of a place that satisfies so many of my multi-sport desires. Depending on the season I can ski, hike, climb, open water swim, road bike, and paddleboard all in one location!
Person that inspires you: My husband. Mostly I am just inspired by the fact that he believes in me, even when I don’t. He is able to see beyond what is, to what can be.

Best piece of advice you ever received? Be quick to admit you might be wrong.
What’s the one thing you’re afraid of? Forgetting how to smile and laugh from the heart.
What’s the most amazing experience you’ve had in your life (besides having babies and getting married)? Last year I completely my first Ironman 70.3. It was so amazing to fully experience the highs and lows of training, persevere, and then execute on race day. Having my family at the finish line just made the day perfect.
Funny tidbit not everyone knows about you…but will now! I am extremely susceptible to a double dare…
What does #aventuralife mean to you? How do you live it? I suppose the Aventura Lifestyle means something different for everyone. For me it is living an outdoor lifestyle, one where we both care for the earth in our living and for our fellow man. Weekly my goal is to inspire more women to get outdoors, enjoy the wide world, travel and take their kids with.
