Never Grow Up! Always stay curious as a kiddo and keep learning.
Describe your perfect day.
My perfect day would include some form of outdoor activity with my dogs and husband, reading a good book, and enjoying a yummy drink like apple cider or hot tea!
What are you most proud of about yourself?
I really am proud to be at a place in my life where I can finally start giving back to others, whether it be financially, through volunteering time, through listening, etc. It is an honor to be a support to others.
Favorite Movie or TV show?
New Girl
Do you have pets?
I have two doggos – one is a wolf-husky hybrid and the other is a border collie mutt and they are my life!
