# of Children: 2 (William, 6 and Francie, 4)
I am up early, make lots of coffee, and get 2 children out the door and carpooled to school. Then it's off to pilates or back to the office. I work when my children are at school so it's lot of calls, meetings, planning and working until afternoon carpool. One of my favorite parts of running my own business is that I can sneak off to read to my son's Kindergarten class or meet another creative friend for a leisurely lunch, I love that I can set my own schedule! The afternoons are nuts and involve ballet, golf lessons, tee ball games, and shuffling children to various activities!
The afternoons with my children (especially this time of year when we can be outside! There is nothing better than springtime in Kentucky!)
What’s the one thing you hope your children have learned from you that they will share with future generations?
What a great question! I hope I have instilled in them that there are a lot of different paths to success and that they can chose their own path.
Any tricks for keeping the balance between work and family?
I must sound like a broken record, but this is a work in progress for sure. It's hard when your business is operated out of your home! But I try and keep it separate, when I am with mu children the phone and computer are away.
My mom empowered me to always trust my gut and instilled in me that I have a strong intuition. I am so grateful for my own wise and strong Momma!
What’s your most treasured accessory?
My charm bracelet - it has my maternal grandmother and mother's charms, as well as the charms my paternal grandmother collected for me growing up. I also added a few of my husband's late grandmother's pieces that were gifted to me when she passed. I'm definitely going back in for this piece if the house catches fire!
What accessory makes you feel most like a woman?
My engagement ring and wedding band!
The scallop cuff, I just love how feminine and delicate this piece is and it looks so great stacked with other bracelets!
