1.When you hear the saying "be the change" what comes to your mind first?
I stand behind my limitless work ethic. From rehabbing a house from the studs to starting a business, to teaching and practicing law, if I don't know how to do something correctly, I dedicate myself to learning, making sacrifices along the way. You can count on me under any circumstances.
2.How would you describe your husband?
After losing his father as a teen, my husband nearly single-handedly raised his seven younger siblings. He served in the United States Navy and how owns and runs a large company, which he and his partner built from scratch. He is generous, honest and endlessly encouraging. He can do anything.
3.If you could revisit one memory as a child in your mind, what would it be and why?
My most prized possessions are the hard lessons I've endured. They have given me an education no school could provide, bonds with friends and family no person could divide, and the wisdom of one who survived a run through a gauntlet.
4.How would someone describe you when you were in high school?
Growing up my nickname was "Ninja," because of all my years studying karate and
competing as a martial artist around town. Now "Ninja" is a source of humor, as I'm anything but stealthy; I'm more like a bull in a china closet crossed with Cosmo Kramer from Seinfeld.
5.If money did not matter.. what would you buy for your husband and why?
There is nothing like autumn's warm sun, cool breeze, layered clothes and fall colors. It's a pleasure to get back to school, enjoy volleyball games, plan Halloween costumes and parties and support Alabama football.
