If you opened your own business, what would it be?
What advice would you give your younger self?
Don’t worry about what others think; do your best and be proud of what you can offer!
Communication, multi-tasking, leadership, knowing how to take advantage of family time! (learned the hard way what it could/can mean when you don’t from losing my brother 4 years ago)
What makes you feel fulfilled?
Being with family and enjoying the work I do each day!
When asked to describe yourself, what’s the first word that pops into your mind?
What makes your heart race?
Worrying what my 4 year old will get into next.
Organization or cause near to your heart-
My own! Dental Connections! But also, American Heart Association (my dad has suffered multi heart attacks that he has survived over the years)
What keeps you up at night?
Stability of non-profits like ours that struggle financially for funding.
What is a belief you once held but no longer do?
I don’t know that I necessarily “believed” that you should judge people by their looks or accomplishments but sometimes it was a bad habit I held. In the last 4 years I’ve come to realize and appreciate that the people that may seem unlike us are sometimes the most loving, appreciative, and amazing people you’ll ever meet in your life!
What are you interested in connecting with other women about?
Business successes, leadership, and parenting! I’m a “new mom” after adopting my 4 year old nephew this year in September.
