I realize "words" are just that, however I know that I have an easy going nature and have always had tremendous patience and empathy for others. Work challenges me and I'm incredibly excited about the projects I'm working on and the people I'm working with. People have said that they admire my emotional strength, however, sometimes I admittedly exhaust myself when trying to do the right thing and at the same time, take care of my own needs. I’m the go-to girl; the source of comfort for family friends and clients who seek advice, because they know I will make them feel better. I also have a spontaneous, goofy side and I like to keep things fun (working in comedy doesn't hurt)!
My most life altering moment was when I became a kidney donor for a close male friend and then had the unique opportunity to share our story on Oprah. If I was able to donate again, I would do it without hesitation.
I'm often asked why I'm still single and my response is: "Have you ever lived in Los Angeles?" I focused my 20s-40s for my career, which were the pre-internet dating days. I "grew up" there and I'm grateful for the education, experience and the relationships that LA gave me. I'm selective about who I spend my time with; I'm not interested in "average." Living and working in NYC allows me to finally have a more balanced life. And I've certainly learned a lot about myself in the process and still learning...
It’s never easy or simple, but one thing I know for sure - living a wonderful, happy life means there's no need to settle for anything less than what we all want and deserve.
