How long have you been a Boston Business Women’s Member?

Less than 1 year

Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

No. My boyfriend, now husband lived in Boston.

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

I've been a writer and graphic designer for 20 years but recently I joined an amazing company called Beautycounter-I am passionate about safer products and changing the industry so that all products whether it is personal care, food, furniture, etc are safe for everyone especially children.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

Beautycounter is at the forefront of pushing for safer products throughout the industry. Every purchase supports the mission of stronger legislation and educating customers about harmful chemicals in beauty products and recommending safer alternatives whenever possible. Beautycounter tirelessly advocates for stricter guidelines and regulatory laws to shift the personal care industry away from harmful and questionable ingredients while supporting organizations such as, Healthy Child-Healthy World, Breast Cancer Prevention Partners and Environmental Working Group all while keeping our prices comparable to other product lines that do not go the extra step of education and advocacy.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

Follow your heart

What is your favorite book?

Anything by Elin Hilderbrand, on the beach in the summer.

What is your secret weapon? An app, a tool, a organization method, anything?! (Can be a personal or professional life tool)

Eating clean..it keeps me focused and energized.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Don't listen to the ``naysayers.`` Try everything..even if you fail you will gain valuable lessons that will direct you to where you want to go. Nothing lasts forever so enjoy every second.

How do you enjoy your free time?

Exercise (Soul Cycle!), getting out into nature (best medicine), spending time with my boys who are growing faster than I can handle.

What is something that not many people know about you?

I love show-tunes (:
