PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:

My daughter, Emerson, of course. I have been an advocate for her with her dyslexia, and am committed to providing the best education for her. I moved her to The Hannah School in kindergarten and she now can read. Emerson and I share a love for rescuing and fostering dogs. Being part of a dog rescue is rewarding and teaches compassion and life lessons for both of us.

LESSONS LEARNED DURING THE PANDEMIC:

The pandemic hit the restaurant business with an immediate call to modify, adapt and rescale. What I learned was the importance of being resilient.

FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB:

Gadwall’s Grill and the Town Pump have been serving families for generations in Little Rock and North Little Rock. These relationships are priceless; I love my customers. So many have come and gone, and their faces and memories still live on in my heart.

REMEMBER ME FOR:

My devotion to bringing awareness to the overwhelming dog population in our state. I hope that one day I can make a difference in the laws.

MOST ADMIRABLE QUALITY IN WOMEN:

Strength, loyalty and authenticity.
