What are you most proud of (personally or in your career)?
I am most proud to have happy kids. Our home is alive with laughter. Our kids did not come with an “OFF” button. We keep busy with soccer games, going to Long’s Park, fishing and singing. I claim to be the best singer in the family.

What are you most passionate about professionally?
I am passionate about building strong working relationships. I pride myself on being a client advocate and working hard to ensure the success of people who I work with. I’ve been very fortunate in my professional career to be a part of a number of great teams made up of people who share the same passion.

What’s your guilty pleasure TV show or song (or something else)?
My guilty pleasure is movie quotes. There should be one hour of every day when you can only speak in movie quotes. My son loves to yell this movie quote to his sister when I take him to school in the morning…“Everybody on? Good, great, grand, wonderful! No yelling on the bus!”
