MOST IMPORTANT THING I HAVE LEARNED: To give 100 percent, you have to have 100 percent to give. Being aware of my limitations, eliminating the negativity and taking things in stride has allowed me to put my best foot forward.

BEST ADVICE I WAS GIVEN OR THAT I WOULD GIVE: Try something new every day. It’s boring to stay within limits.

BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU’VE OVERCOME: Learning how to create balance in my life through the understanding that I am one person, there are so many hours in a day and only so many ways you can stretch yourself.

BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT TO DATE: While I am proud of what I have accomplished professionally, my biggest accomplishment to date has been starting a special needs division for cheerleading and having it recognized by the State of Connecticut.

WHAT OR WHO HAS ENABLED YOU TO BECOME SUCCESSFUL: I have been fortunate to work with outstanding people throughout my career that have given me guidance and opportunities to be successful. From the beginning, my true mentors have been my father and stepmother that have supported me through college, provided advice and have given me the tools I needed to become who I am in my career.

WHAT YOU WOULD WANT YOUR LEGACY TO BE: Having helped even one person and positively impacting their life as so many have for me.
