FIRST BIG BREAK:

The trust and belief that Chloetta Craven had in me at the age of 13 to work in her store. Her belief in me helped cultivate a strong desire to be the best I could be, to work hard, experience life to the fullest and appreciate beauty in all things.

BEST PART OF YOUR DAY:

Enjoying my coffee while catching up on the morning news and snuggling with Clementine, our Frenchie.

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:

Raising two wonderful children and being the stepmother to four is a very fulfilling and great accomplishment which ranks alongside being asked to serve on the Arkansas Children’s Foundation Board of Directors, which helps to secure the health and well-being across not only the state but the region.

SURPRISING FACT:

My childhood nickname was Charlie. Being the youngest of three girls, my dad was hoping for a boy and was going to name me Charles after his father. To this day, some people from my hometown still call me Charlie.

REMEMBER ME FOR:

Being able to balance our hectic, fun life which is full of family, friends, work and travel. Always being “me” without any pretenses or judgement while being gracious.

PERSON YOU ADMIRE MOST:

Diane Brown. She began her career at 18 as an intern for Tiffany and Co. and went on to become one of five VP’s in the United States. She was successful in balancing her career and home life, which included a special needs child. She did all this with courage, grace, humility and discipline. Sadly, we lost her to breast cancer in 2020.

ADVICE TO OTHERS:

First and foremost, be true to yourself. Use your time and talents to give back. The rewards are far beyond what you could ever imagine.
