Favorite coffee drink?
Typically, I’m a drip coffee girl, but if I’m in the mood for something special, a London Fog (Earl Grey tea steeped in hot milk).
What is the best piece of advice you have been given?
A friend once told me, “You already have ‘no’.” In other words, if I don’t ask, nothing will change.
I was a timid child. I have learned if I don’t ask for something because of fear, then there is absolutely no chance of achieving my desire/goal. This applies to something as simple as asking for broccoli instead of peas on the menu included with a meal, to asking for something on behalf of A Friend for You. And when hearing a “no”, my response is respectful or exhibiting thankfulness when hearing a “yes”.
If you could instantly become an expert in something, what would it be and why?
This is easy…I’d love to speak another language. Spanish or Italian.
My husband and I have two adult children. Our son came through the blessing of adoption and our daughter through birth. I’ve seen God’s work in my life in many ways, just ask me! Before serving within A Friend for You, I’ve worked in different fields from retail management to the legal field; which I believe has helped me to better serve our clients.
Why are you passionate about A Friend for You?
Serving our clients within A Friend for You is my calling….it’s what gets me up in the morning. I was blessed to have support when I was pregnant and at times, it was still challenging. I want to help encourage and support women (through pregnancy and post-pregnancy) who may not have had the amount of support I had.
Within my local community, I’m thankful for a variety of material and professional services. But that isn’t enough for our clients. They benefit by having a Friend…we all need someone who is there to talk to and extend care and support, no matter what.
