Q: What’s your favorite quote/mantra?
“Everything is figureoutable.” -Marie Forleo
Q: Who would you most like to swap places with for the day?
Oprah. She gets to talk to the most interesting people.
Q: What are your top 3 favorite podcasts/books/blogs to follow?
- The Yoga Show (Podcast)
- Don’t Keep Your Day Job (Podcast)

Q: What is something people in your industry/niche have to deal with that you want to fix?
Not being able to use the data they collect. It’s so unfair that the people who work hard to collect the data—and the people they collect the data from—do not get to see the results of their data or make decisions with it. I want to change that.
Q: What are your hobbies?
Yoga, writing, running, bike riding, sledding with my boys, and all the fun outdoor Colorado things like hiking and camping.
Q: Tell us something we don’t know about you.
I am also a writer! I love to write in my free time—I currently write for a local yoga magazine.
Q: Describe your job in 3 words.
Q: What do you appreciate most about working at ResultsLab?
I love that we get to support organizations that are doing amazing work in the community. I am inspired by the commitment that these organizations have to improving our community, and I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunity to strengthen their work.
