SURPRISING FACT:

I think some might find it surprising that I am somewhat adventurous! I’ve enjoyed skydiving, have a strong desire to live in a foreign country (Italy perhaps?), and have two tattoos. And I really, really want a retro, moped/scooter.

FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB:

My current organization, Arkansas Capital Corporation, is simply quite amazing. The organization’s legacy has stood strong for over 60 years for helping people, and we have the most dedicated, intelligent and caring group of professionals in Little Rock.

MOST ADMIRABLE QUALITY IN WOMEN:

I love to see older women who’ve aged well and who place careful attention into the way they present themselves and “show up.” A woman who has a strong presence, exudes confidence, maintains an active lifestyle and radiates that oh-so-lovely feminine glow.

PERSON YOU ADMIRE:

While this might sound cliché, I adore Oprah — no last name needed! She overcame unimaginable challenges during her childhood and into her adult life. Even still, she moved forward with fierce resilience, wrote lessons from misfortune, and is devoting her life to teaching others how to do the same. She is wise, and I aspire to operate in the same way.

ADVICE TO OTHERS:

Pray and be still. Get quiet long enough to hear the whispering voice within you (the voice of God, intuition, gut feeling, etc.), and once the answer is known, you will know. But one must be still enough to hear and understand it.
