What inspires me: The needs that exist in our communities, and the plenty that sits right beside that need. Finding and forging a bridge (and the examples of people who have done a good job at that)…that’s inspiring.
What I am most proud of: Using everything I have learned – in life, in work – to try to grow 2 beautiful boys into people who dream forward…they have great dreams!
I feel most courageous when: I go beyond my comfort level, stretching myself and the teams I work with.
