Hometown: Henderson/Las Vegas, NV

First job: Silver Springs Rec Center camp counselor.

Favorite ways to spend your free time in NV: Dining at one of the amazing hotels and casinos in Las Vegas with friends and family and spending quality time with my daughter. She loves art, and we go to Mi Amor Art Studio all the time.

Your biggest accomplishment and why: Most definitely my daughter and my family. It took years for us to have her and we are so blessed she is ours!

The biggest obstacle you overcame: Transitioning from law grad to entrepreneur. It was a struggle trying to find my purpose, but I just kept doing things that made me happy and that I truly loved.

Someone who inspires you and why: My mother, Lola. She worked tirelessly her whole life so I could have the education and upbringing she always wanted for me, and I am forever grateful.

Advice to someone pursuing a career path in what you do: Don’t let fear get in your way. Do not be afraid to fail. Failure is just a way for you to learn and perfect your craft so you can be even better than you already are.

Favorite quote: “Don’t give up on your dreams, or your dreams will give up on you.”

Something someone would be surprised to learn about you: I may co-own a coffee shop but I do not drink coffee! I love tea, and matcha is my go-to drink. We even have a Lin’s Matcha at our restaurant Café Lola. I also do not eat meat, but I love our seasonal veggies at 3 Little Chicks and our fry bowl. And we’ll have a vegan sandwich coming soon!

What makes someone fabulous: Confidence and kindness.
