1.When you hear the saying "be the change" what comes to your mind first?
Just because you buy something on sale, doesn’t mean you are saving money. This is something my husband likes to say when I come home from a shopping trip. At first I didn't like it, but now I realize the truth behind it. It's important to realize that if I were not already intending on buying the item, even if discounted, I will still be spending more money than originally allocated.

2.How would you describe your husband?
My daughters! Watching them learn and grow gives me hope for the future. They motivate me to be more involved with the community through volunteering, attending church, and spending time with family. Seeing their love and passion for the little things in life makes me cherish every second we have on this earth and gives me a desire to create a better tomorrow for them.

3.If you could revisit one memory as a child in your mind, what would it be and why?
I would teach the lessons I have learned in cosmetology. When you become someone’s stylist you become their friend. It's important to inform cosmetologists how to listen to what their client say's and be able to reply in a kind, clear, and comforting way. Yet, also be able to go home and not be weighed down by the information taken in. I would stress the importance of self care and the ability to let go.

4.How would someone describe you when you were in high school?
I would be 80 years old! My husband and I live a very traditional way of life. We started our family young and I'm a stay at home mom. At 80 I would have been in the prime of life during the revolutionary age of fashion and I would never have to make up an excuse as to why I want to eat at 4:30 and go to bed at 8:00 every day!

5.If money did not matter.. what would you buy for your husband and why?
Mine and my husband’s most fun dates have been our active ones and at the top of my list are always our visits to trampoline parks! I love the “Ninja Warrior” courses, the foam fighting rings, and the rock walls at the parks. They are challenging and allow us to let go of our stresses, get in an exercise, and release our inner child!
