- Tell us about your everyday job.
I work for Mercy explaining the Affordable Care Act to individuals and the public. I provide community education about the ACA to businesses assist people with enrollment.
- Tell us about your family.
My husband Nick and I have 3 dogs and no children. We’re happy with that for now.
- What is your role on the GOTR board?
I serve as a board member.
- What’s the best part about being involved with GOTR?
I love seeing the changes the program makes in the lives of the girls. Not only is GOTR a great program for young girls, it is a great program for adults as well. The lessons taught are applicable to all stages of life.
- Are you involved in any other great causes in southwest Missouri?
I enjoy working with several organizations that promote healthy lifestyles for families and spending time in nature. To me, there’s nothing more enjoyable than spending time outdoors. I enjoy working with organizations that promote trails, children in nature, and healthy activities in general.
- Who is your hero?
I don’t think I have one hero. I am inspired by people I meet every day. Everyone has a unique gift to share.
- Where would you go on your dream vacation?
One of two options. I would love to take a tour of Alaska via dogsled or I would like to spend a couple weeks on a tropical island.
- What is your favorite dessert?
Cheesecake. Or Ice Cream Cake.
- What is your favorite physical activity?
Do I have to pick one? Running was my first true love, but as I’ve grown older I’ve come to enjoy hot yoga, swimming, hiking, paddleboarding, kayaking, and a little gym time. So, really anything that doesn’t involve a ball that can hit me in the face.
