The best part of my job:

I love that I get to interact with people and hear their stories. It doesn’t hurt that I get to hold a baby every now and then.

Something on my bucket list:

Write and get a book published.

My favorite summer activity:

Taking a road trips with my children and not having to do homework.

If I could go anywhere in the world for two weeks, it would be:

The Bahamas. I fell in love with the people the first time I went and would love to spend more time there with my children this time.

If I could trade lives with anyone for a day, it would be:

Vanna White. She gets to get dressed up every day, one of my favorite things, and travel the world with a job turning letters.

My favorite movie quote:

“You is good. You is kind. You is important.” from The Help.

When I drive I listen to:

I usually like to have it quiet to hear myself think, but it’s usually some really loud music like TobyMac with my kids singing right along.

My favorite scripture:

“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” - Deuteronomy 31:6
