Tell us a little bit about your business and why you chose to start it. 
I love helping put together events and parties and was told by several family members and friends that I should pursue it as a career. I started consulting part-time for a few years and then decided I wanted to turn it into my full-time job almost 3 years ago.

What excites you about working at Cornerstone Studios?
The collaboration opportunities and the inviting environment for meeting with clients and vendors.

What is your go-to dining spot in the Twin Cities?
Well, I have a 3-year-old so usually, it consists of family restaurants. But I love Mexican food, so Acapulco is a favorite and I also have a strong obsession with Taco Bell for a fast food option.

What outdoor activities do you love to do in Minnesota?
Does drinking on a patio count?

What is your dream travel destination?
I've been to some really cool places already so I might just go back to some of them again (Greece, Rome, Paris, Hawaii). I always think one of those huts on the water would be fun but I can't swim so that has kept me from doing it. They still look beautiful.
