1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
As a Christian woman and teacher, I always come back to a saying from Martin Luther King Jr., â€œDarkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.
2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
I truly find simple joys get me excited about life. After being extremely sick for two years, I lost a lot of time with family and friends. Being in surgical remission, has allowed me to live life again. Just smelling a cup of coffee or feeling the wind on my face put the biggest smile on my face and have taught me to not take a moment of my health for granted.
3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
As a first-grade teacher, every year, I teach my children how to work together to be a community. In our classroom, we work together and solve problems together, we become a family. We accept and love one another while being the best versions of ourselves we can be. If I can teach anything to others, it would be to embrace your unique abilities and be confident in who you are.
4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
I feel I would be 30 years old. I felt very established at that age but still full of energy. I was already a full-time wife, mother, and educator. It was also when I feel I started to be my most confident self.
5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
My husband and I love to watch scary movies. Our first date was dinner and a scary movie so our ideal date night is a delicious dinner and a movie and then we end our night cuddling on our couch with our pit bull, Dunkin and cat, Cappuccino.
