Define your sense of style in three words.
Chic, luxe and sophisticated.

What do you wear to feel most confident?
A tailored trouser, a tight leather jacket and some Louboutins.

What is an app on your phone you can’t do without?
I know this is a really boring answer but my Mail and Calendar app.

What’s the best career advice you've ever gotten?
Don't let the hard road deter your from getting your dream job and where you wanna go.

Share a misstep that you made in your career and how you overcame it.
I really wish I tried a lot harder during college when I was going to UCLA. I should have paid more attention in school and picked a major that is more applicable to the job I have now.

What do you wake up every day looking forward to?
Everyday I wake up looking forward to meeting with my team at RARE and just getting going for the day.
