What is one word that describes you perfectly?
What advice would you give to the next generation of female leaders?
If it’s a desire of your heart, never give up! Try to always find the positive in everything even if it doesn’t turn out the way you had your heart set out for. (Always see it as a blessing from God.)
What makes you happy?
Balance – Time to myself to better myself and achieve goals (such as lifting weights) and time with my loved ones to enjoy companionship.
How do you measure success?
Each step whether big or small but in the right direction that is further than where I used to be is counted as a victory in my opinion. You are successful as long as you keep more forward!
What historical event inspires you the most?
I actually have 2..Rosa Parks and the Civil Rights movement and Amelia Earhart and her determination to accomplish a dream
What is your favorite quote and why?
“Strong women fight with grace in their heart, kindness in their voice, and love in their souls.” This one of so many favorite quotes but I chose this one in particular because it is always a reminder to stay kind and humble through your whole journey. That’s what makes a positive and strong persevering woman!
