Q: Where were you born and raised?

A: Majority of my life has been in Kings Mountain with a 10 year period 20 minutes down the road in Gastonia….

Q: How would you describe your personality?

A: Words  I have heard used to describe me would be “planner”, “perfectionist”, “dependable.”  I agree with those, and would add I am a bit of an introvert, really dislike confrontation, pretty adventurous and have a slight obsession with black boots.  A girl must have choices!

Q: How would you describe your sense of humor?

A: Very dry and sarcastic, so anything you read of mine please remember this….nothing is malicious but I know no other way….

Q: How do you define success?

A: Completion of a goal, no matter how big or small.  To feel a sense of accomplishment and complete a day without wanting to ram someone with my car.

Q: Describe one of your GUTS moments.

A:  I have had a few of these in my life but the first one that stands out to me is between my separation and divorce.  I had never truly been on my own. Going straight from highschool to living with my husband, I never had to take care of everything as an adult.  In those first few weeks fear and anxiety were overwhelming. I did not think that I would ever make it on my own.  I made the choice to try.  I started by finding a church and a circle of friends for support, I asked for help with things I was unable to do….fixing a leaky roof, and as each day past I realized my life was not over and I would not have to move back in with mom!!!

I also think jumping out of the airplane required guts too….

Q: Name one of your pet peeves.

A: Only one……there are so many….Top of the list would be inconsideration for others and anyone who says “itch my back”….people, it is “scratch my back”….NOT itch it!

Q: What is one thing you hope to accomplish in life?

A: To make a difference for someone.  Making someone feel loved, thought of, encouraged, providing a need or helping with solving a problem.  I just want people to know they matter.

Q: What do you like to do in your spare time?

A: Spending time with friends trying things we have never done before….I also love reading and dancing.

Q: What do you wish you could do more of in life?

A: Laugh…..alot……

Q: What causes you anxiety?

A: As I am approaching middle age, I am beginning to worry about taking care of my aging mom and if I am equipped to handle all that comes with the role reversal of parent and child.

Q. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

A. Ben and Jerry’s Half-Baked….with brownies and cookie dough….awesome!!!
