Colleen Hungerford is a mom to three awesome kids and married to her high school sweetheart. She also happens to be Indy Maven’s newest partner and a realtor based in Carmel. But she wasn’t always a realtor and she didn’t always live in Carmel. In fact, she’s a transplant from California who loves (like loves) pizza and burritos. (Guess what, Colleen? We do too.) Tell us more, Colleen!
My Maven Superpower is … Adaptability.
Best book I’ve read lately is … More Money, Less Hustle by Jess Lenouvel
Self-care habit I swear by … Honestly, sitting in my car for 5-ish mins to take a moment to let my mind chill out, and switch gears before I go into the house. It’s not a face mask, but it makes me a better person.
My first job was … Other than working in my parent’s business from the time I could sit up, my first real job was at JoAnn’s Fabrics when I was in high school.
The best career advice I can offer is … Be adaptable, say yes, especially when it scares you, and remember there are a LOT of really successful people who are not as smart as you, so just go for it!
A purchase I’ve been loving lately is … The IL MAKIAGE Foundation, it’s fab
My favorite local restaurant dish is … The Turkey Tarantino from Joe’s Butcher Shop, but sub the roll for the French Batard…life-changing
The thing I’ve been binging lately is … Yellowstone and Succession
A fun fact about me is … When I was 22, I won a 135K Jackpot on an Elvis Slot Machine!
The skill I most want to learn is … I just signed up for tennis lessons, which is equally terrifying and exciting
A Maven you should know is … Lashelle Hatcher
