What is one word that describes you perfectly?
One word that describes me perfectly is determined. I don’t stop until I achieve my goals, even if they are really small.
What advice would you give to the next generation of female leaders?
I would tell them to not let the fear of failing or making a mistake keep them from their goals. Failing is a part of growing. Making mistakes is a part of the experience. Failing and trying again, makes you stronger and allows you to gain experience on how to be better next time around. This can apply to any goal.
What makes you happy?
I mean, lots of things make me happy. Simple things like being outdoors, food, cute little animals! But I think the thing that brings me the most joy at this point in my life is watching my 19 month old son grow and learn from my husband and I.
How do you measure success?
I measure success by happiness. Are you happy with your achievements? Content in your goals? If you can honestly say you are happy with what you’ve accomplished, whatever that may be, I think that’s what makes a person successful.
What historical event inspires you the most?
The most inspiring to me is when the 19th amendment was certified as law and women were given the right to vote. Many women fought for YEARS for that to happen and with their determination, it finally did.
What is your favorite quote and why?
My favorite quote is “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” -Thomas Edison
