Q: What are three words that describe you?
A: I am self-motivated, very organized (in my house every drawer is very organized – everything has a place) and reliable. If I tell you I’m going to be somewhere or do something, I’m going to do it.
Q: Tell me about your family.
A: My husband, Kirk, and I have two beautiful daughters – Katie is 4 and Sandy is 1 ½. We have a really big golden retriever named Brady who is 7. All of my free time is spent with my kids. When we can, we like to go to the beach and go swimming or just be outdoors.
