What is something about you that most of your coworkers don’t know?
Growing up as the only girl, I wanted a little sister who I could boss around and show her off with cute outfits, and comb her hair. Well, I didn’t get my prayer answered. I have a younger brother who is eight years younger than me. When he was born, I asked my parents if they could take him back to the hospital (I thought the stork brought babies) and get me a sister. Even though that’s what I prayed for, my mom had to explain to me the “birds and the bees” and that my new little brother would be with us for life. He and I have an unbreakable bond!
What do you like most about your job?
I love when I see our community come to our events and get everything that they need! It’s extra special when they come and hug me, or even just say thank you! I enjoy seeing the smiles on their faces and their children’s faces light up. This has been one of the most rewarding jobs I have had! When I can serve the communities and see that over 150 people show up rain or shine — that’s the best feeling. It warms my heart to know that WIN has done a JOB WELL DONE and we WIN again!
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Hawaii – I can’t swim but I love looking at the water.
What three things do you think of the most each day?
1. Winning the lottery
2. Taking a long road trip with my two baby dogs
3. Watching my parents age well and thanking God they are healthy, they can drive and do things together.
