Go-to song: "Be Alive," "Boss," and "Cozy" by Beyoncé stay in rotation.
Favorite restaurant: Prego. I am a romantic and sentimental person. I used to go to this restaurant, that has been around since 1983, a lot when I was single to people watch and enjoy a delicious and authentic Italian meal.
Most recent book read: "Eloquent Rage" by Brittney Cooper
Superpower: My superpower is connectivity. I enjoy developing new relationships and learning about people to make a deeper connection.
How do you start your day? I have adopted my late grandmother's morning routine—prayer, the news, and breakfast. She always said, "without prayer and breakfast in the morning, you cannot perform at your highest level, and you won't be able to get through the challenging times in your day."
What is the most difficult thing you've had to do? Watching my father take his last breath at the age of 63. I was a daddy's girl, so I couldn't imagine a world without him.
What's one thing most people don't know about you? Not everyone knows about my intimate relationship with music. I am an ardent music fan of various genres, with some of the most memorable moments in my life connected to music. For example, at my wedding I had 10 musical acts and curated the overall soundtrack.
