5. What are your favorite tools for time/household management?

I have two dogs; one is a 49 pound black and white Boarder Collie/ Lab mix, and the other is a 3 pound shitzu/poodle mix. They play together like best friends!

10. If you work, what’s the most rewarding part about it?

It’s very rewarding to be part of a child’s life as they learn and grow. It melts my heart for a child to meet major milestones and to be there to witness it.

11. If you could choose any career, what would it be?

I am working on a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy, and would love to work with Families in any capacity.

12. If you could tell your younger self something, what would it be?

Listen to the wisdom of your elders! We may not always agree, but often times they have made mistakes for us. By taking heed, we can save ourselves a lot of unnecessary trouble.
