What is your favorite game or sport to watch or play?
I am a huge college football fan; on Saturday morning, the kids know the TV turns to Game Day at 9:00am. I also grew up playing volleyball, played in college and coached a high school team after graduation so I have a passion for that as well!
What’s the last book you read and what did you think?
The last professional/business book that I read was 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth by John C. Maxwell. It was a great read on personal development, goal setting and reflection.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
My children! My three kids are my greatest joy and they know how to put a smile on my face. We love to be together as a family and can always make each other laugh!
