Where are U from?
I was born in upstate New York (Binghamton) but moved to Arizona when I was 5 years old, so all of my real memories are from growing up here in Scottsdale.
What inspired U to start U & Improved?
I owned a couple of businesses with my ex-husband and we went through a very sudden and shocking divorce back in 2008 when our daughters were only 1 and 3 years old. I realized our businesses would be dissolved so I spent some time really focusing on my passion and purpose, and what I truly love to do, and where my gifts lie. The idea for U & Improved came in that moment. I love to serve and empower others to tap into their greatness and help to show them that they can do and be ANYTHING they want to be. I went back and got my Masters Certification in Business and Personal Coaching at that time and decided to create a business to help empower individuals and businesses to grow by leaps and bounds, both personally and professionally.
Who inspired U?
I have been a self-professed “personal achievement junkie” for the past 20 years. I have studied and learned from the best of the best, and what I knew was that I was going to create a company designed to deliver profound, life-changing results through my business. Beyond all of my personal development mentors (Jim Rohn, Les Brown, Anthony Robbins, to name just a few) my other personal mentor was my grandfather. He passed away when I was in my early 20’s, but we had a very unique and special connection, and his love for philosophy, quotes, thinking differently and living life from a perspective of compassion are all the qualities that he helped ingrain in me since I was a young child.
What is your favorite food?
CHOCOLATE! Is that really a food?! I LOVE sweets…desserts are my most favorite thing to eat…period. In terms of “real food” I love gnocchi and pasta or a great filet mignon with a glass of Pinot Noir. J However, I eat a lot of salads, chicken and veggies … staying healthy is imperative to me. If I don’t take care of “me” I can’t give and do and be all that I need to be for all those I love and care about.
What is the first thing U think about in the morning and the first thing U think about before going to bed?
I wake up and think about what I am most grateful for, and what the day ahead holds for me, and what I will create. Before going to bed I do my best to clear my head and just relax, then envision all that I want to accomplish for my life and those I love and cherish. However, I am usually asleep in about 8 seconds of my head hitting the pillow! J
