If you could start all over, what would you do differently?

Honestly I’m not sure if I would do anything differently because I’m very content and proud of the woman that I am today. Looking back I see that everything (good and bad) had to happen for me to get to this point. I did the best I knew how at the time. I didn’t know what I didn’t know, so I believe I would do it the same way to be who I am today.

Tell us about a professional goal you have made strides towards this year.

I published my first book, Proceed through the Uncomfortable, and officially launched my coaching and speaking business, Achieving Your Purpose, LLC, in 2020. My goal is to continue sharing my gifts for empowering, inspiring, and encouraging others to pursue what they desire.

What are three traits you are proud to possess?

Authenticity Empathy Loyalty

What advice would you like to share with the next generation?

I would and do tell the next generation to do, be, and love yourself. Get familiar with the serenity prayer: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

What is your favorite word and why?

My favorite word is “intentional”. I’ve been on autopilot ever since I became a young mom. When my son (2nd of 2 children) left for college a few years ago, I became intentional in my actions to pursue what I want.
