What is your favorite hobby or thing to do with your personal time?

I really enjoy adding to my perennial garden each year. It’s fun to see what is going to come up next and then splitting them off the next year to add to different areas of our landscaping.

Relaxing in the sun and swimming. Trying out new recipes and passing them along to Family & Friends. I love to cook!

As you can see from the picture “personal time” doesn’t happen often. These 2 little Sweeties keep us on our toes! Wouldn’t trade them for the world.

What is something about you that would surprise people that already know you?

I completed a mud run obstacle course a few years ago. One of the last obstacles was to walk on a beam that was set above a huge lake of muddy gross water. Somehow by the grace of God I was able to walk that whole beam and not fall in the water all while my Co-workers were cheering me on.
I’ll never do that again!

If you could have dinner with somebody famous, living or dead, who would it be and why?

I would have dinner with my Sister Katie, she passed before I was even born at the young age of 6. Being the baby of a Family of 5 I would love to know where she would have fit in personality wise with the rest of us.

How do you define “exceptional”?

Exceptional is being the best version of yourself every single day.
Whether personal or professional going above and beyond will always leave a lasting impression on whomever you are dealing with. In the words of Coco Chanel, “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”
