What do you like about Mustard Lane or just working events in general?
I love that Mustard Lane is a community of kind, hardworking, and lively people. I enjoy working events because it means impacting people in a meaningful way, it allows for people to step away from one reality and into another, even for a magical moment.
When you’re not on the Lane…what are you doing?!
Seeking new experiences!
Favorite restaurant or food?
Buddha Bowl – basically anything with rice and lots of vegetables.
What is one of your goals for 2023?
To welcome in 30 with a bang!
Name a place you’d love to travel to. And why?!
Antarctica because not many people have been there and I want to make it to all seven continents.
What’s your favorite way to spend a day off from being a Laner?
I love going into nature and connecting.
Do you prefer podcasts or books? Favorite one?
I’m definitely more of a podcast person!
If you could have your dream job tomorrow, what would it be?
Professional stylist traveling around the world for clients.
What’s an essential part of your daily routine?
What’s a brand or event that you would love to represent or work as a Laner should the chance ever arise?
