ATTRACTION TO CAREER:

I feel deep satisfaction in making people smile and helping them live out their purpose. As a fundraiser, it’s not about the money as much as it is about making sure people know they are adding value to someone’s life.

BEST PART OF YOUR DAY:

The ride to school and work in the morning with my sons. We pray together. We sing songs. I want them to be assured of how much they are loved before we part ways for the day.

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:

Surviving breast cancer during a pandemic, as a single mom of two boys in virtual school, while working full time through two surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation. I survived and thrived because of the constant support of my amazing friends and family.

SURPRISING FACT:

I haven’t missed an episode of General Hospital since 1992!

REMEMBER ME FOR:

I hope to be remembered for being kind and empowering people to assert themselves and never doubt their self-worth. Everyone has a purpose. It is up to us to discover it, nurture it and live it.
