Major personal accomplishment: "I'm a physique competitor. A few years ago I learned that my cholesterol was a little high, so I hired a trainer and started eating better. My cholesterol came down and I realized I liked working with a trainer, so I found a guy who was a competitive body builder." 


Next personal goal: "I'm really excited about a seminar I’m going to offer to professional women about finding their professional passion and having a balanced life."


Dream vacation: "I really like Bali, but I’m excited about going to Fiji and the Seychelles."


Dream car: A Maserati


Phone: iPhone


Laptop: Macbook Air. "It’s so light! For commuting you can’t beat it."


Other tech tools: iPad. "When I’m commuting between here and Atlanta and if I don’t have too much work, I take my iPad. I can have my music, my videos, movies--and it’s nice to have a bigger screen than my phone."


Favorite store: "I can’t get out of Target without buying something--and it’s usually a lot of something. And I love outlet shopping."


Favorite beverage: "Target’s Market Pantry brand has individual flavor packets for water. They have fantastic flavors!"
