"I am a strong woman. I am confident, funny, analytical, aggressive, opinionated, independent, beautiful and a little crazy! I know I am definitely not perfect."
"Alone, I raised two amazing and truly compassionate children and designed and built Blue Surf Sanctuary, a boutique hotel and surf school in Costa Rica, from the ground up."
"I have spent many years working on myself, with a therapist, books, yoga, meditation, and mostly through practicing my spirituality."
Has extremely high standards for potential suitors. For instance, her list includes: square jaw, dark hair, light eyes, tall, broad shoulders, fit, medium-sized lips. He has to be intelligent, have a sense of humor, have confidence, be compassionate and successful.
"I place a high value on aesthetics " I love beautiful things! I'm beautiful, my kids are beautiful, my home is beautiful. It is a superficial requirement, but I can't deny that that's what I want. I have chemistry with a beautiful man."
"I think I intimidate men just by who I am."
Wants to be in a relationship. "I get sad when I realize that I am not modeling how I want my kids to be in their relationships, but at least I am showing them how to be a powerful, accomplished business woman."
