What’s you most recent awesome accomplishment?
I finally finished editing my first children’s chapter book in a fictional series based on Greek Mythology. Yay! Now to get it published.
Who is your hero?
My grandmother. She was my dentist my entire life up until 4 years ago. She retired at the age of 86 and was the first of two female dentists to graduate from U of Penn.
Who are your style inspirations?
My cousin in Estonia – Tiina Talumees I love her whimsical and sophisticated lines.
Why is it important to love our bodies?
Because we only have one! No one is perfect; even super models get airbrushed. The majority of people who join my group aren’t happy with themselves physically but it begins with self love, not physical appearance. We need to realize how amazing we are inside. How our personality can light up a room if we only allow it. Our physical characteristics can always be improved upon if desired but to me it’s about getting healthy from the inside out and then the happiness will follow. It’s not so much about how we look but how we feel.
If you could give your 16 year old self advice, what would you say?
It may be cliche but SLOW DOWN! No need to try and grow up too fast, there’s plenty of time for that.
Do you have a favorite quote? If so, what is it?
It’s a tie – “I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then” – CS Lewis and “A healthy attitude is contagious but don’t wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier” – Tom Stoppard
Favorite Karina dress (if you have one)
How did you discover Karina Dresses?
Your perfect day. What would it look like?
Wake up bright and early and go to the beach, meditate a bit in the sun. Go for a walk on the boardwalk and then meet up with a friend for lunch. Take my son to the park. Fresh air and sunshine with loved ones is all I need!
