Who or what inspires you?
Brene’ Brown – she is a wise woman that I admire tremendously. I found that her words of wisdom can be applied to almost every aspect of day to day life.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Intellectually – completing an accelerated master’s degree program in a year while working full-time and watching my High Schooler play Varsity soccer and Lacrosse. The Master’s degree isn’t the crazy part, it’s that I hadn’t been a student in more than 25 years. Physically – I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane while in New Zealand.
