What’s Your Morning Like?
I really cherish my mornings because it’s my “alone and thinking” time. I wake up at 6 a.m., read my WSJ with a cup of coffee, work out and then shower. I wash my face with either Yes To Blueberries Facial Scrub or Yes To Cucumbers Gentle Milk Cleanser. I use soap to shower since I’m not really a body wash person. I use Phyto for all my hair-care needs and Yes to Blueberries serum and La Mer SPF Moisturizer on my skin. From the shower to the door it takes me about 45 minutes to leave the house. For breakfast, I drink a glass of water to hydrate and eat oatmeal with fruit and walnuts.

Describe A Typical Day At Work
I don’t have a typical day. It’s always different and that’s why I like it. Each day is diverse and unpredictable. Some days I’ll have meetings with my team where we discuss new products and marketing ideas, or I’ll negotiate contracts with my suppliers or talk to my board members about the business. I eat pretty light for lunch because I usually have a drinks and appetizer commitment after work. My lunch is usually a half sandwich, half salad combo with lots of water. I won’t drink caffeine after breakfast.

What Do You Do After Work?
Either drinks and appetizers or I’ll have a light dinner that’s related to board work, networking or mentoring. I like to eat fish or poultry with rice and vegetables and drink lots of water with lemon. I’m usually to bed by 10:30 p.m.

Any New Products You’re Excited About?
I’m really into oils and masks. Right now, my favorite products are coconut oil and the new Yes To Blueberries Face and Neck Oil (but it’s not out until July)! I’ve also been using these anti-aging paper masks I picked up at a beauty market in Korea.

Are There Any Surprising Steps In Your Beauty Routine?
I have a really simple routine with very few steps, yet I have so many products because I love trying new things. At night, when I’m too tired, I only use a wipe to clean my face.

What Would We Be Surprised To Know About You?
I’m a NASCAR junkie! In my prior life before Yes to, I was in sales and was responsible for the company’s NASCAR program. I went to one race and became addicted!
