1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
Empathy is my favorite word. It means to identify with and understand the feelings of another person. As a personal crisis life coach, I connect with my clients emotional pain so that I feel their struggles within myself which helps them to know I truly care and want to help.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
Having an interest in crime investigation makes Criminal Minds my favorite TV show. The show is based on the Behavioral Science Unit of the FBI which studies human behavior. I think my true calling may have been to be an investigator, and my husbands nickname for me is the profiler.

3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
I would say my worst habit is shopping for groceries when I am hungry which results in purchasing WAY too much junk food and sweets. If I shop soon after eating a meal, my food choices are smarter and healthier, plus I spend less money.

4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves. Sir Edmund Hillary, the first person to climb Mount Everest said these words. I believe it is not the obstacles in our lives that keep us from our dreams but the limitations we place on ourselves that hold us back.

5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
When I was a child, my Mom would iron our familys clothes on Saturday afternoon, and I would watch TV movies with her while she ironed. Those Saturdays spent at home with Mama are some of my best childhood memories.
