What motivates you to work hard?
Knowing that I have pleased my clients is my biggest motivation. I always want to leave the day feeling like I have satisfied my client’s expectations.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Last week I would have said putting together my child’s kitchen set, but in reality it is raising him, even though it has been only a short two and a half years so far.
What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done?
Each time the Blue Angels visit a city for a show, they choose three local dignitaries and three media professionals to take a ride. I was selected by my television station to take the trip. I went through a thorough physical and training. We pulled 7.5 G’s and flew across the northern part of Alabama in about 30 minutes (normally a 3 hour car ride). I actually did not get sick; however, I “greyed” out – basically I passed out, but I could still hear the pilot telling me to breath and do the “hic” maneuver they had taught me. It helped! I woke up after about 5 seconds and we continued on. It really is a trip of a life time, because once you fly with the Blue Angels, you are never allowed to fly with them again.
