Social media platform you can’t live without:


Biggest break:

“There isn’t any one event that stands out, rather my success stems from the combination of a deeply rooted faith, difficult life experiences, an amazing support system and hard work.”

Two words that best describe you:

Gritty but sweet.

Work/life balance technique you recommend:

“Don’t be afraid to say no, especially if you’re a people pleaser like me. Before choosing to spend time on something, ask yourself if it will help you realize your purpose.”

Your advice for the next generation:

“Success isn’t about accomplishing a checklist, it’s about the relationships and impact made along the journey. Never lose sight of who you are or the potential you were created to realize.”

In one sentence, define success:

“One of my mentors shared that success comes when hard work meets opportunity.”
