Who inspires you?
“My children inspire me. When I became a mom 22 years ago, it changed my life. I never understood the true meaning of unconventional love until then. My mother’s famous words…’you just wait until you’re a mom’ have never been more accurate. My mother also inspires me, because of her strength. She is ‘Super Mom.'”
What are your hobbies outside of work?
“I could be hanging poolside or at a winery with friends and family, and I’d be perfectly content. Cardinals Opening Day is one of my favorite days of the year, and I will never get sick of the St. Louis Blues hockey team. I love to decorate and often think I should have been an interior designer. I also enjoy music and concerts.”
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
“You can do whatever you put your mind to, and you’re only going to be as good as the people you surround yourself with, so surround yourself with people you look up to and want to learn from. And, most importantly, be kind.”
What’s your top bucket list item, and have you completed it?
“Travel to Italy.”
What’s the last thing that made you laugh out loud?
“My best friend group from high school.”
