» Personal hero: Any woman filmmaker. There are still some industries that require women to fight for their voice, and film is one of those industries.

» One thing she knows for sure: There’s nothing better in my life than the sound of my children laughing.

» Very own vici: I started my business while being a mom. I give both my children and my craft the attention they deserve. I feel like I can have my cake and eat it, too.

» Zen destination: Rolling Hill Park in Gladwyne. You’d never know it’s there.

» If she had an extra hour each day, she would: Chat with a girlfriend.

» Life view: chance or fate? I think it’s both. I think we are all in control of our lives, but fate and chance are sprinkled in. It’s how we respond to them that ultimately determines our destiny.

» Pet peeve: Littering.

» Most marked characteristic: I’m creative. I think it comes out not just in the way I produce video but also in the way I treat friendships, the way I go about being a mom—all aspects of my life. Creativity has always brought me so much gratification.

» Quality she admires most in others: One’s ability to go out of their comfort zone to help others.

» Mantra: Resiliency is key for me when handling any situation. Life is never perfect, and it’s important to identify with the positives. But even in the most negative experiences, there is something to be learned.
