Mantra? Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together (borrowed from Elizabeth Taylor).
Best grooming tip? Invest in eyelash extensions. You can’t really put a price on waking up pretty. Enhance Lash Studio is the best in Barrington.
Guilty pleasure? Boy bands, Marshmallow Peeps, and British television dramas.
Favorite foods? Staying true to my roots, Italian food is the best on the planet, but nothing beats a good taco.
Music you love? I love everything, but Motown or ’60s inspired recording artists are usually my faves.
Best advice ever given to you? Think of other people’s drama like a bas- ketball. Receive it and then pass it right back to them. Be empathetic, but don’t internalize it.
Best advice you’ve given? Get a pre-listing home inspection! Earliest memory? Going to Northwest Community Hospital to meet my baby brother.
When you wake up, you? Take my puppy outside, do a quick yoga sesh, make note of what I have to accomplish for the day, brew a cup of coffee, and watch WGN News.
Before bed, you? Watch Call the Midwife.
What’s on your book- shelf? The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy. Its old school and metaphysical, but so relevant.
You can’t live without? Monthly massages with Allison Mall, LMT. She’s a miracle worker.
Love to escape to? Naples, Florida is my usual spot, but I love visiting the San Francisco Bay Area too. I’m dying to take a trip on the Belmond Andean Explorer luxury sleeper train in Peru.
Advice you would give to your younger self? There’s no such thing as “having it all.” Life is about finding alignment with family, relationships, and work.
