Special Interests

Inspired Leadership: My daily work with breast cancer patients has not only touched the lives of these cancer patients, but has been such a meaningful experience in my life as well.

Powerful Drive: Work very hard. You may have to work harder than you counterpart to get the same recognition, but do not let this discourage you. Let it make you stronger.

Leading with Purpose: I admire leaders who recognize people working in all positions within an organization. Businesses cannot run without the hard work of many, and they should be recognized for their contribution.
