Favorite quote: 

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. Within our response lies our growth and our freedom” — Viktor Frankl

It’s powerful to recognize that regardless of the circumstance or situation, I get to choose how I show up (respond).

Favorite hobby:

I host a semi-annual 31-day workout challenge that single-handedly changed my relationship with exercise. I played competitive soccer throughout my childhood and teenage years, and coached youth soccer for over a decade. I no longer play (or coach) soccer, but you can catch me dribbling a soccer ball up and down the beach in Malibu, hitting a heavy bag (boxing), sweating at a HIIT class, hiking, rowing on my Hydrow rower, interval sprints on a treadmill, lifting weights. I’ve recently started using the heavy bar, which is a new challenge for me. If it involves movement, sweat and challenging my body – I’ll try it (at least once!).
