ATTRACTION TO CAREER:

I have always had a deep love for the disability community and my passion paired up perfectly with the mission of Civitan Services. Not to mention this position has given me the opportunity to dive into our community and build incredible relationships and networks that bless me on a daily basis!

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:

I am the most proud of my beautiful family. I have been married to my husband, Speedy, for nine years and am a bonus mom to three amazing young adults — Austin, Bailey and Bryce.

SURPRISING FACT:

I am an introverted extrovert. I love to be around people and thrive off of group energy but it absolutely wears me out. When I have “super peopley” days, it is absolutely my norm to disappear for a day to rest and rejuvenate.

MOST ADMIRABLE QUALITY IN WOMEN:

Individuality and tenacity. I love a woman who is secure in her own skin and not afraid to carve her own path. My mom, Mary, has always instilled in me the values of paving your own path and unabashedly chasing your dreams.

FAVORITE HOBBIES:

I love to be outdoors and near any body of water — but especially the beach. I enjoy reading or listening to a great audiobook. I’m 100 percent addicted to crafting of all sorts, and I have what feels like a million Pinterest boards. However, in my spare time, I facilitate a small organization, Project Prom, that provides formal wear to young men and women for school functions and events at no charge.
