Erica Carder

1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
Growing up, life wasnt always easy for me and my family. My family is my constant reminder that each day there isnt an opportunity to say I cant or give up. My family is who helps me to remember who I am and who I want to be.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
The perfect day would be to wake up early, brew a cup of coffee and practice some yoga or mediation. Afterwards I would take a walk through Central Park with my husband and puppy. Lastly, I would try to accomplish one or two items on my to-do list and attempt my hand at a new recipe.

3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
I bring positivity into everything I do. When anyone is upset or if someone says something negative, I always try to turn the situation into a positive one. There is too much negative thinking in the world and its important to never let that energy affect your personal quest.

4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
A photo of my grandfather. He is my daily inspiration that I can be best me and do everything that Ive set out to do. No matter how hard something is or how bad times may feel, when I look at his picture I know hes always looking over me.
