What makes you feel like a powerful woman?
"It's all in the little things, they add up and make me feel fierce. I feel powerful when I am able to lift weights, when I tackle something new in my business and it proves it's worth, when I can fit in those skinny jeans, when I have cute underwear on, when I am in a business pitch, when I assert my boundaries, and even when I treat myself...because I can."

Who are your top three badass female role models?

What is your favorite tux couture piece and why?
"So I had the ILLANA SHAWL COLLAR JACKET customized with my SILK red LINING and my custom message on the inside left breast, "You GOT this."
There's something super versatile about a blazer, but this tux jacket brings a whole new list of options. I wear it with my ripped t-shirts and ripped jeans, some red heels. I wear it to formal events, I wear it to presentations, and I wear it especially when I need an extra boost. My custom embroidered message is on the inside, but I know it's there, and when I got to button or unbutton the jacket, I always take a peek, smile to myself, and feel like I can conquer the world. "
