Q: What are you reading?
A: I’m currently reading “Good to Great” by Jim Collins on how to attain and grow superior performance as an organization; chapter three on building great teams is especially resonating deeply this year as the WISE Las Vegas chapter expanded our board. I’m also re-reading a favorite book, “Untamed” by Glennon Doyle, which is such an inspiring and empowering memoir about living life on your own terms outside of traditional societal norms. And I recently finished “Fanocracy” by David Meerman Scott on turning fans into customers and customers into fans; I’ve loved diving deeper into the power of marketing in my new strategic growth position at Insight Global. All three books are phenomenal, and I can’t recommend them enough!
Q: What is your favorite restaurant or place to take clients?
A: I have three go-to favorite spots with clients here in Las Vegas: Legacy Club at Circa, Kassi Beach House at Virgin and Delilah at Wynn! Legacy Club is a beautiful rooftop cocktail lounge with a classy and fun atmosphere, and the best view of Vegas in my opinion, especially at sunset. Kassi has a very cool vibe with a contemporary, Italian seaside aesthetic — the restaurant manager, Shannon Luzaich, is the best and you can’t skip the mezze platter. And my absolute favorite, Deliah, is a modern supper club with vintage décor and the most glamorous ambiance.
Q: How do you decompress after a long week?
A: I’m a total extrovert so spending time with friends and family is always my best way to decompress; my people keep me grounded and being around loved ones recharges me. I love planning fun experiences and making memories whether it’s trying a new local spot, traveling somewhere exciting, or just having deep conversations about life.
Q: What do you do to workout?
A: I used to do a lot of barre and yoga, but I’ve discovered Pilates very recently and am loving it!
Q: What is the biggest challenge facing Southern Nevada?
A: Las Vegas is cementing itself as “America’s sports capital” and things are obviously exploding right now in such an exciting way. I moved to this city in 2020 mid-pandemic at my company’s request; I only thought of my time here as a temporary rotation before I fell in love with our local community coupled with the exhilarating transformation we’re experiencing, and I’m now proud to call Vegas my long-term home. However, I think our biggest challenge is keeping up with the tremendous growth and making sure our local community is continuing to thrive, stay connected and be supported. We’re somewhat building upon a new foundation and reputation for our city post-COVID with all the new transplants, sports teams, etc. so we’re in a pivotal time both preserving and defining our community culture as we continue to expand.
