FAVORITE MUSIC GENRE “Umm … all of them! I love good music.”

FAVORITE LYRIC “Life is what happens to you when you’re busy making other plans.” — “Beautiful Boy” by John Lennon

CAREER HIGH NOTE “Marrying my husband. I know that seems unrelated, but in a family business it’s all related! Clayton is the highlight of my life. It is with him I find passion and purpose.”

PITCHY ADVICE “Worst advice ever? ‘Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.’ What a load of bull! Few people love their job, industry and team more than I do! I love what I do! But I work. Hard. Every day. It’s exhausting — but more rewarding than you can imagine.”

BEATING TO MY OWN DRUM “I put a high price on authenticity. I spent a lot of time wishing and pretending I was normal or like ‘other girls’ (whatever that means). But I realized all my crazy quirks are what make me awesome!“

MY FORTE “I have extremely high self-efficacy. I think I can do anything! Learn anything! Be anything! Makes me extremely efficient and constantly on the prowl for new challenges.”

DREAM RECORD “To create a legacy of service and abundance with my brothers that will inspire the next generation.”
