What words most define what you want to achieve in this life?
Carpe-diem! I want to make the most out of everything I experience in my life pertaining to my family, work and friends.

What would people learn about you if they looked in your closet?  

That I need to take some time to organize my own closet!

What is your favorite way to pamper yourself?

Take off, spend time with my kids to go on adventures without phones or Internet!

Where is your favorite place to be alone?

In the woods; on the May River before sunset when the marsh grass illuminates to brilliant gold and greens; and under the sea—diving!

What is on your bedside table?
There is a Carolina baseball hat, a stack of books including: Jesus Calling; The Courage
to Grieve; The Holy Bible; The Screwtape Letters; and a copy of Today’s Hunter.

Do you have a favorite inspirational quote or saying?

“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you
your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” –Ezekiel 36:26
and “Just keep swimming.” –Dory, Finding Nemo

If you could go back in time and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?
“Be quick to listen, slow to speak.” –James 1:19

What does the word confident mean to you and what’s the importance of feeling confident day-to-day?
Confidence means knowing that God is in control of my life. The importance of feeling confident day to day lies in knowing that every decision and its results have led me to where I am today. I am blessed beyond measure because each decision has led me closer to Him.

What is the most important piece of fashion that you wear?
You’re never fully dressed without a smile... and of course anything from Copper Penny! (Mary Margaret is the owner of Copper Penny Boutique at Shelter Cove Towne Centre. Stop by say hi!)

What advice do you have for someone who wants to open a business?

Knowing your strengths is important.  Knowing your weaknesses is even more important. Bring others in that fill in your gaps!
