Top three Goals Right Now
1. To finally begin to enjoy the hobbies I had been putting off in order to finish my doctorate. 2. To learn to speak Japanese and to travel to Japan with my husband so I can learn more about his culture and family history. 3. To continue training and eventually compete in (and complete) a marathon.

I really enjoy working out—everything from kickboxing to running to yoga. This is a good thing because I also love to cook (and eat!). I paint watercolors and play the piano when I can sit still long enough.

Biggest skincare concern
When I was growing up in the Midwest, I had perfect skin—I very rarely had a blemish. Unfortunately, when I moved to California and hit my mid-20s, my skin changed completely. It became more sensitive and developed acne. When I was in my mid-20s, I began using DHC products and my skin improved dramatically. This year I will be turning 30, and I feel like I look better than I did when I was in my early 20s (wow—that was a decade ago!!!).

Favorite DHC products
DHC Mild Soap is by far my favorite skincare product. It is such a simple and basic cleanser, yet so gentle on my sensitive skin, and has improved my acne dramatically. I buy it by the five-pack. Occasionally I use the DHC Mineral Mask to detoxify my skin and help with clogged pores. I don't need to use it often, but when I do, my skin always feels soft and looks clean (even up close) afterward.

I love the feel of DHC Balancing Lotion after cleansing my skin. Even though my skin already feels clean after using the Mild Soap, Balancing Lotion is like a finishing touch to perfect the texture and glow of my skin.

Biggest inspiration
My biggest inspiration is my family—not just my parents and younger brother and sister, but also my husband and his family. I always wanted to make my family proud of me, but knew that I did not want to stay in the Midwest. When I moved to California and met my husband, his parents and older sister welcomed me into their family as if I had always been there. It is so great to feel loved and accepted by people that you respect and admire as well. Every day I feel so fortunate for the opportunities that have been given to me, and for the place that I am in, in life. I have never felt more at peace.
