If you could describe yourself in one word, what would that be?

Reliable. I feel people at work, family and friends can always count on me for anything.

What are your hobbies?

My hobbies are being with my family and friends, working out, cooking, and reading.

How do you recharge?

I like to go on walks – out in the country. Being with family always works too!

If you were to tell one person “ Thank You” for helping me become the person I am today, who would it be and what did they do?

My parents – dual effort! The examples and lessons they showed us kids growing up, and still today – are what I base many of my decisions on still! It’s always in the back of my mind – “What would Dad and Mom say/think?”

What’s the most important lesson you have learned this past year?

To ALWAYS write down my passwords. And always in a place I can remember I put them!

What movie or novel do you most identify with? Why?

Any superhero movies! My grandson loves all superheroes and he loves to call me “WonderWoman” ( I may have told him Wonder Woman’s true identity was ….me!)

When are you the happiest? Why?

I am the happiest when I’m with family and friends. Never a dull moment!

What kind of impact do you believe you have on people? Why?

I feel I inspire people to always do their best and to believe in themselves.

What one memory do you most treasure? Why?

Growing up in the country! Life was full of adventures.

The obvious answer too, is marrying my husband and our 3 kids!

What superpower would you like to have and why?

I would like to fly. I’m afraid of heights – so I’d get over that real quick!

If you ruled the world, what would you change on Day 1? Why?

This is very cliche – but I would somehow bring peace and morals back to this world.

My husband thinks I would place a Krispy Kreme on every corner!

How do you think your coworkers see you? Why?

Quite clearly – they’ve all had LASIK!!

If you could eat only one food on a desert island, what would it be?

Krispy Kreme Donuts!
