Who are the women who inspire you the most, and why?

Without a doubt my mother, who sadly passed away last year. Despite battling breast cancer twice in the last eight years, and all that throws at you, she still lived life to the absolute fullest. Dancing, cruising, paddle boarding, lunching, socializing—you name it, my mum did it, and was so courageous and glam with it, right up to the very end!

What advice would you give your younger self?

Try, within reason, to live every day like it’s your last! Don’t live in regret for not taking those chances. Be open to new challenges, and allow yourself to be pushed out of your comfort zone. Any mistakes you make will only make you stronger! 

As we’re celebrating Women’s History Month, what advice would you give to any women reading this?​
