1.Words I live by are:
Being a good friend is about knowing that no matter what, you are there for each other. It is about being able to be yourself and accepting others for who they are, and it is about spreading smiles and joy to people you encounter who aren’t your friends - yet.

2.What are your pet peeves?
When I am under stress I begin to clean compulsively. Cleaning helps me to feel like I am restoring order and being productive at a time when other things feel difficult to manage.

3.How do you stay organized?
Every morning my great-grandmother would open the door to their farmhouse and a hen would come in, lay an egg under the sink, and then go back outside

4.How do you relax?
My grandmother had a phrase she taught us: “sometimes in life there are things you have to do whether you want to or not.” This taught me to buckle down in difficult situations, address the issue(s) at hand. When you’ve done that, you can take a bubble bath.

5.What is your dream job and why?
Dignity comes from the latin word “dignitas” which means “to be worthy.” To me, this means in all circumstances, good or bad, that one should rise to the occasion and respond with integrity. With this response, I find myself worthy.
