Growth, contribution and fulfillment are core values influencing every area of my life, from opening an insurance company and selling it 10 years later, to fighting for marriage equality in AZ. and coaching over 150 people who collectively raised more than $150,000 through various community projects & impacted 1 million people worldwide. By 38, I had tackled the typical milestones in life including falling in love, heartbreak, college, buying a car, buying a home, moving cross country, traveling abroad, starting a business, and selling a business. Only marriage & parenthood remained, the two things I ALWAYS said I never wanted. I realized, however, the key to my core values was in the ampersand (&),and living an "&" life is now what I encourage others to do.
