1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
My husband arranged a romantic evening in Paris, France to include attending the Moulin Rouge Cabaret Show. The lights were low, candles were lit, a full bottle of champagne on the table. Suddenly beautiful ladies with very little attire were dancing around our table. I looked over at my hubby to be greeted by a snore. I popped the champagne and woke him up at the end. Win win for me.

2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
The dishwasher and me. Wait, that is the same thing! I love to cook but hate to bake. It's a math thing. I am somewhat addicted to cooking shows. I would love to be on Chopped but I may find better success on Worst Cooks in America.

3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
Social media paints a picture that is not true for most all of us. There are filters for appearances but many of us filter the stories too. We show the best days. Life brings struggles and perfection does not exist. Like EVERYONE, my life is far from perfect. I am so imperfect and I struggle with my own faults. I always say be kind to one another, kindness changes the world and so can we.

4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
Being a Mom has been my biggest leadership role. I love my job but at the end of the day/end of life, it's about family, friendships and kindness. My son has Cerebral Palsy and has fought from birth. I will fight for him until my last breath. I’m blessed to be a Mom, fur/feather Mom and wife. Leadership can be defined by example and I hope to always make my family proud.

5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
Losing my parents young, having my son being born at 23 weeks, having a heart attack/stroke in my 30’s and my husband being a disabled Army vet, has given me somewhat of a “live like you are dying” approach to life but I do believe that fear can hold us back. I would say I would not be fearful of the good and try better to accept that challenge.
