Name: Shyla Collier
When and why I moved to Apache Junction: I moved to Sunrise Canyon in 2013. I loved the neighborhood and how much Apache Junction Parks and Recreation had to offer my son.
What I do: I own Premiere Social Media. We are a digital marketing agency in Mesa. We offer all forms of online marketing but specialize in nationwide social media management and training, website and graphic design, search engine optimization and women's networking groups throughout Arizona. I am also the author of Social Media Key to Credibility and a contributing author to the Amazon Best Seller, When You're done Expecting, endorsed by the founder of Make-a-Wish Foundation.

What I like most about what I do: I love helping other business owners succeed.
Favorite community cause and why: Eagle Pathway helps single moms and anyone in the foster care system. I know just how hard it is to be a single mom, as I am one myself. The founder, Angelise Calderon, is such a giving person and helps so many people. We did a toy drive for her organization during Christmas. Go to eaglepathway.org
My family: My 10-year-old son is my everything.
My interests and hobbies: Spending quality time with my son and supporting him in his acting, dancing, singing and modeling career. We like to go to museums, community events, play laser tag and enjoy attending tea parties together. Go to christiancollier.com
The traits I admire in others: Honesty and integrity are always top on my list, as well as working hard.
My guiding philosophy: Life is about learning from your mistakes, picking up the pieces and making a change. God is always there to guide you.
