What inspires you?
I’m constantly inspired by relatives, friends and even people that I don’t know, that are able to pick themselves up from a major life-altering event and, through hard work and persistence, get their lives back on track, oftentimes making the second half of their lives far better than the first could have ever been.

What are your favorite hobbies?
I love listening to audible books as well as reading actual books, and I aspire to have a very impressive library in our forever home! I also really enjoy trying different varieties of wines and bourbons.

What can’t you do without?
My family (obviously) and a glass of wine after a long day.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
This, too, shall pass. So, don’t sweat the small stuff.
