What is your birth order and how do you think it affects you?
I’m the oldest of 5 siblings. I think being the oldest has made me more independent and driven to succeed.
If you could hire someone from any profession to come into your home and do their job at no cost to you, what would this person be doing?
I would absolutely have someone come in and organize everything in my closets, my office, and even my garage!
Tell about three hobbies you have enjoyed over your lifetime. Are they still a part of your life today?
Gardening, biking, and yoga. Gardening has taken the wayside due to less free time in my life and in order to nurture a healthy, thriving garden requires more attention than I can give right now. I do love it though and plan on doing it on a smaller scale. I bike- I LOVE the freedom of being outside on 2 wheels getting fresh air around town or in the mountains. Yoga will always be a part of me.
Describe your first car. How long did you keep it?
My first car was a white, hardtop ’91 Jeep Wrangler. I loved it! Too bad I never took it 4 wheeling lol! I had it for 3 years.
What organizations are you involved in outside of work?
Previously I was involved with Denver Urban Gardens. I’ve also been involved with Impact- Sack lunches for the homeless.
Who would play you in the movie of your life?
I think Angelina Jolie. She can portray the strong female lead that would represent my life. Through perseverance, and trials & tribulations of being a female, single parent, who struggled to do what’s best for her family while discovering herself through love, mistakes, tears, laughs, and success!
