Birthday: Sept. 12. Virgo to the core!

Personal life: Single

Priors: Attended Columbia University and the University of Michigan (go Blue!); international corporate attorney in London; management team at a NYC-based growth company.

Pitch inspired by: Leslie Knope! As silly as it sounds, Amy Poehler's Parks and Recreation character taught me a lot about the contagious power of optimism, kindness and persistence.

Words to live by: If you want something you have never had, you must be willing to do something you have never done.

Last read/watched/listened: Alec Baldwin's podcast Here's the Thing. His voice is built for radio, and I love the candor and intimate, detailed nature of conversations with his accomplished, inspiring friends.

Expert in: Modeling and pursuing a life akin to Curious George levels of curiosity, adventure and mischief!

Social: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram

How I recharge: Transcendental meditation. Ellen DeGeneres talked me into it a few months ago, and she always knows best.

Top of travel wish list: I've always dreamed of visiting the gorillas in Rwanda and am determined to make it happen this year.

Favorite life hack: Where has coconut oil been my whole life? I use it everywhere — food, skin and hair — and it truly makes everything better. And (of course) lists. I make one every day for tasks, mental goals, emotional aspirations and beyond!
