I'm the founder/ Executive Director of the nonprofit Milk + Bookies, which gets books to kids who need and want them working to create equality in education.
My time spent as a parent of one tween and one teen is my REAL job. I'm a native Angeleno and, so naturally, I'm married to a screenwriter.
How are you hoping to grow personally and professionally over the next year?
I'm always looking to grow personally and professionally (but more personally), so this year is no different than any other. I'd love to identify habits, add new ones, break old ones.
What would surprise people most about you?
I am a green belt in Kung Fu.
What do you wish you had more of in your life?
I love gardening, decorating and cooking/ baking. So I suppose I want more Martha Stewart/ 1950's housewife stereotype time in my life - is that wrong??
Where do you hope to see women in 50 years?
I don't believe that equality exists since woman are clearly the stronger species - we can multi-task, feel more deeply and... make a frickin' person!!!! So I hope that society reflects that more and more each year.
As a mentor I can offer: Details about starting a successful and sustainable business, navigating the nonprofit world and parenting complicated children.
As a mentee I am looking for: More inspiration about EVERYTHING.
