1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
On one of our date nights out, my husband and I decided to try a fancy restaurant. As we started sipping our drinks, my husband's elbow knocked over his drink, sending it splashing onto his lap. We tried not to laugh, but it was hard not to when you have a husband who is always knocking over stuff! We promised to only go to restaurants with washable tablecloths on our next date night out.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
In my kitchen, my coffee maker and my husband are the two most important things. My coffee maker provides me with the perfect start to my day. My husband adds warmth and companionship while we cook and eat together, making it a fun and enjoyable experience. His unique culinary skills bring new flavors and ideas to our meals. Together, we make our kitchen a perfect place to create and share amazing food and moments.

3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
Despite what people assume, I have worked incredibly hard to achieve everything I have. My father passed away at a young age, and my mother had to work incredibly hard to provide for our family. Witnessing her determination and hard work inspired me to do the same. No, I don't have an "in". I have earned everything I have through tireless effort and sheer determination.

4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
Being an Entrepreneur and Business Owner of a bridal shop & boutique demands excellent leadership skills. I readily demonstrate various qualities that showcase exceptional leadership abilities. One of the essential skills that I exhibit is my ability to inspire my staff. I motivate them to do their best and to set an example by working alongside them diligently. When the going gets tough, I remain calm and composed, reassuring everyone that everything will work out!

5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
Racing a stock car is an exhilarating experience that I would eagerly pursue without fear. My husband used to race them, so me trying it would provide a unique opportunity to share a part of his life and bond with him. Completing the race would be an accomplishment that I would treasure, and the shared experience would form an unbreakable bond, making it a moment that I would never forget.
