MOST TREASURED THING I OWN
I have a 4 generation photo from when I was a only a few months old that includes my great-grandma, grandma, and mom. When my daughter turned 1, I was able to create a similar photo for her including her great-grandpa, grandma, and myself.
ONE PIECE OF ADVICE
Be comfortable with being uncomfortable – that is how we stretch ourselves to learn and grow.
When not working, I enjoy being active- from walks to group strength and HIIT classes. I love cooking and baking homemade food for my family. I also like to do DIY projects, puzzles, and wine tasting!
