Favorite memory/moment in career - "There have been so many over the years, but one that was special to me was when I held a student council election on my team. A student was nominated who didn't consider himself to be worthy of the position. When I explained to him that he would make a great representative, he wrote an outstanding speech and became excited to run for the office. Not only did he win that election, but was also elected in 8th grade and at the high school to serve on student council. I'm always on the look out to see if he might run for office and serve as a community leader."
Fun Fact - "I have been involved in the equestrian sport for 11 years. Although my son is the rider, I have taken great pleasure in my role as a parent with the riding team at Willowick Farm. The people at our barn are wonderful and I love watching young people discover the joy of horses. We attend competitions around the southeast which support a variety of charities, such as Ride for a Cure. it is a privilege to be involved in the equestrian sport."
