Anywhere beachy and tropical. I never get tired of being a beach bum.
Who has left the most impact on your life?
My parents have had the most impact on my life. I am who I am because of their influence, and for that, I am forever grateful. I owe everything to them- my successes, my personality, my attitude toward life and others. I am beyond lucky to have such a strong and supportive family.

I’m not afraid of confrontation, so I would say that I engage in conflict head on. I would much rather talk about the problem, resolve it, and move on instead of avoiding conflict and dealing with passive aggressiveness.
Are you a good cook?
I’m an excellent cook, I just don’t cook very often (thank you, husband!) But when I do, I go all out- everything’s made from scratch and I end up making enough food to feed 10 people.
Do you have pets?
We have 2 dogs, 1 cat. My Siberian Husky thinks he is a 10 pound lap dog, and my cat is chubby, short and spoiled.
Who is the best teacher you’ve ever had?
The best teacher I ever had was my 3rd/4th grade teacher, Mr. Ecker. He was by far the most influential teacher for me, even though I was so young. Mr. Ecker was so unique, and he had a passion for teaching others. Rest in Paradise, Mr. Ecker.
