Who or what inspires you?

My family inspires me. I want to be the driving force for my children to do more than I ever have, as they have been my force to do more.

Is there a quote or saying that you live your life by?

“Do what you feel in your heart to be right, for you’ll be criticized anyway.” -Eleanor Roosevelt

What is one characteristic that you believe every leader should possess?

Communication. A leader must be able to express their vision to others.

What advice would you give someone going into a leadership position for the first time?

Your way is not the only way. Be willing to change and consider new opportunities.

What are you doing to ensure you continue to grow and develop as a leader?

I am a lifelong learner. I am always looking for new, innovative, and encouraging ways to lead. I challenge myself to do things out of my comfort zone.

What are you currently watching on Netflix?

No Netflix, but I am excited about Walking Dead coming back on.

Why are you a part of the BOOST Leadership Team?

I love being part of an organization that stands behind what we believe in and finding meaningful and insightful ways to give back the OST field.

For breakfast I had, pumpkin spice flavored COFFEE, an egg white omelet and two slices of bacon.
