Perhaps one of the most admirable things about Kari is not only her great professional strengths, but also her ability to achieve that work life balance that the rest of us strive for. Take a read below to hear her take on how to make love a priority even when your life is as busy as hers.

What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?

EYES! You can tell some much about someone through their eyes!

 What is the best piece of romance advice you have ever received?

Never settle for anyone that does not deserve you.

If there was one piece of advice you could give to other men/women out there, what would it be?

Communicate! No, that does not mean via email, text, snap chat and or any other form of social media! Seat down and talk face-to-face. Communication is the key to any successful relationship.

How do you keep the romance alive in your relationship?

Date night! With our busy lives and travel schedules, we make sure we continue our date nights and be present with each other.
