How long have you been at Prevail and what is your position?

This April, I will have been at Prevail seven years as the Executive Director. 

What do you like most about working for Prevail?

I love working with the amazing, professional, dedicated, passionate, competent staff at Prevail! 

What is your favorite quote?

“Change your thoughts and you change your world.”  Norman Vincent Peale

What would you sing at Karaoke night?

Well, I am not likely to sing in public, but there are a few songs from Meat Loaf that might be fun!

What motivates you the most to serve others?

I believe it is a privilege to serve others.  I have been blessed in my life and love to have the opportunity to serve those around me.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Something Mexican and cheesy!

What is your proudest accomplishment?

Raising my children who have grown up into responsible, independent, authentic adults!!

What animal do you most identify with?

I aspire to live life like my dog – happy to sleep all day, but ALL IN when it is time to play!

Favorite Prevail memory?

My favorite memories are connecting with other staff, and my very favorite is when one of our very introverted staff was decorated as a snowman at one of our holiday celebrations.  So out of character for her, but so fun for the rest of us!!

Favorite self-care practice?

Making memories with friends and family!
