If you had to get a tattoo right now, what would it be?

PS: I’m working on getting my 5 pillars – trust, truth, grace, patience, & freedom – tattooed on myself in a tiny, delicate font! I already have trust, grace, and freedom tattooed, so if I had to get another tattoo right now, I’d probably go with the word truth.

What’s your most-used emoji?

PS: Definitely the black heart – its chic. 🖤

What was the moment you felt you had "made it" in your career?

PS: Honestly, I don’t think I’ve had an “I made it” moment! My growth has been slow and steady, and I still feel I have a long way to go before I feel like I’ve “made it,” so to speak.

If you could give your younger self one piece of advice, what would you say?

PS: Be present! Don’t worry too much about the future, it’s coming whether you worry about it or not, so you might as well slow down and enjoy right now.

PS: Green! It’s the most calming color, in my opinion.

What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?

PS: This is a tough one! Some people don’t really love this answer, but Carbone’s Spicy Rigatoni truly hits the spot every time. I’ve tried to recreate the recipe at home to no avail. I’ve never regretted this order.

Who was your childhood celebrity crush?

PS: I had a few, but the first one that comes to mind is Chad Michael Murray – specifically in A Cinderella Story.

Shout out one of your favorite fellow creators!

PS: I have so many! I try to shout out a couple creators on my podcast, Note to Self, every week in a segment called ‘Content Corner.’ My list could go on and on — but I discovered Sydney Hoffman on TikTok this week, and I’m loving her content!

What’s your go-to karaoke song?

PS: One thing about me: I’m not a karaoke girly. I hate being the center of attention (strange, given what I do for a living).

Tell us about your dream podcast guest.

PS: Kris Jenner. I love that she’s a mix of calculated, in terms of career, and candid.

If you couldn’t be a content creator, what would your dream job be?

Share your top three desert-island necessities.

PS: An XL water bottle, a notebook, and some SPF.

What’s your No. 1 distraction?
