For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
Having a set routine! A routine was something I was not concerned with in my teens and twenties. While I love to be spontaneous and live in the moment, a set routine is how I manage my daily life now. Being a business owner, a non-profit founder, and Mrs. North Carolina International, it is imperative to have a routine to allow me to achieve my daily goals and responsibilities.
What is the biggest change you want to make in your life?
The more that our virtual world and use of technology grow, the less our face to face interactions and communication occur. My biggest concern is that we aren't taking the time that is really needed to connect with our families and friends. My husband and I have very busy schedules, so we make it a priority to reconnect by setting aside a date night once a week.
What do you think is the best feeling in the world?
I truly enjoy traveling the world with my husband! I love seeing the most breathtaking places with my best friend at my side. One of my all time favorite memories is the time we traveled to Ireland and worked our way around the entire country. I am Irish, so sharing those moments with my husband was priceless!
What was the single, best realization you have ever had?
Being in my thirties, I have learned to appreciate my life's journey. Every experience along this journey has led me to the person who I am today. I am happier with who I am, because of the life lessons that I have been taught. Life in my thirties has shown me to be humble, caring, lead with a servant's heart, and focus on the love of family and friends.
