FUN FACTS

  • I love roller coasters: I’ve been on the fastest roller-coaster in the world in Abu Dhabi. My favorite roller coaster of 2017 is Superman at Six Flags in Vallejo.
  • I’m a certified professional coach.
  • I have two nieces–ages 17 and 11–who live in Sacramento that I love to spend weekends with.

“People tend to burden themselves with so many choices. But, in the end, you can throw it all away and just make one basic, underlying decision: Do you want to be happy, or do you not want to be happy? It’s really that simple. Once you make that choice, your path through life becomes totally clear.”

― Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul
