I have always wanted to… perform stand-up comedy.
What trait do you admire in others? People who can follow through.
What is your pet peeve? When someone I know ends the conversation with “take care.” I know it’s a common phrase but I feel it denotes an impersonal distancing. I never use it.
What is something most people don’t know about you? I have the ability to see the attributes of people that indicate their strengths.
Words you live by: ‘ Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.’
What is your advice for your younger you? Don’t second guess myself. My younger self many times acted on other’s advice.
Who is someone you’d like to meet? My younger self, and I’d set her straight.
What inspires you? Seeing happy faces while I’m entertaining.
