1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
I am most grateful for the love and support from my family and husband. They have been so supportive of everything throughout my life and I am truly thankful to have them along on the many journeys I have taken. They have showed me the importance of hard work and passion, and I look forward to all the new adventures coming our way.
2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
The biggest change I want to make is teaching more of our youth the acceptance of others. I want to see people accepting and appreciating one another for who they are, no matter their differences. It begins with our youth, as they are our future. We can all come together to be this positive example for children and watch our world change for the better.
3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
The best feeling in the world is making a positive impact on others and helping them achieve their goals. When you empower others to be the best they can be, you are helping them reach their own goals and find more acceptance of their self. If you genuinely put your whole heart into something, you also find that the outcome will be more meaningful.
4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
The best realization I have had is that everything truly does happen for a reason. We cannot always control what is going to happen in our lives, but we can continue to take the paths that we believe are best for ourselves. Staying true to yourself, putting your best foot forward, and keeping a positive outlook will lead you to where you are meant to be.
5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
The ocean! There is nothing more peaceful than being on a beach and hearing the waves crashing down. Hearing the sound of the ocean brings me happiness, reflection and memories. Happiness as I feel calm. Reflection as I think about all of the good in my life. Memories as it is my family’s tradition to visit the beach every summer.
