2. What do you love about your job?

I am grateful for the opportunity that Nordstrom has given me over the last 22 years. What I love most about my job is two fold- first, I have an opportunity to positively impact many young women’s lives as their mentor, coach, advocate, and business partner. And as a Latina woman, working for a company that prioritizes our approach to customer, products, and talent through a lens of diversity and inclusion has been very special. Second, working for a world class fashion retailer allows me to live my fashion dream!  #fashionlover #lovemyjob

3. Who inspires you?

I am thankful to be surrounded by many woman that inspire me. Also, I’ve had mentors throughout my career that have helped me grow. One particular person made me want to be a better person and leader: our late Co-President, Blake Nordstrom.

4. Tell us about an accomplishment you are proud of.

There are many things, but nothing is more significant than being a mom. I am most proud of being Baron’s mom.

Tough question. My favorite SN piece in my closet today is the blue teddy coat from the fall delivery. But, I have a feeling the best is yet to come!

6. If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Spaghetti 🍝 I think I gained about 40 pounds when I was pregnant 10 years ago, because all I craved was spaghetti!! Terrible but true! Now, I enjoy spaghetti less habitually!
