Waze. I would be lost without it. See what I did there?

The ability to captivate an audience. This is truly an artform.
Do you have any hidden talents?
During a charity event, I beat twelve current NFL players in cornhole while wearing six-inch heels.

What is the best advice you have ever been given?
The Rolling Stones told me, “you can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might just find, you get what you need”.

What was the biggest thing, business or personal, you accomplished this year? 
My biggest accomplishment this year was staying home. In the last several years, I have averaged (35) flights per year. A full year without a single trip has been both challenging and a welcomed change.

Who is your favorite Superhero? Why?
My parents will always be my favorite superhero(s). I owe everything to them for giving me a magical upbringing. My support system is second to none. 

Is there a charitable cause you support? If so, what makes them so important to you?
Almost Home – Animal Shelter. This non-profit is dedicated to finding loving, forever homes for unwanted homeless animals. I am a massive animal lover and feel they should be protected at all costs.

I am a forever student. Every single day is an opportunity to grow.
