Favorite TV Show: Andy Griffith—Again, it’s a southern thing. He always reminded me of my own Dad.
Favorite Food: Absolutely PASTA! I love pasta in almost any combination as long as it’s tomato sauce. Second would be desert, anything with apples and ice cream or cheesecake tops that list.
Favorite Music: Country music because I can really sing along. The rock songs are just out of my range and I love to sing with the radio.
Best Part of My Job: People. I love talking to people and meeting new people. I am just friendly by nature and everyone is generally very nice to me.
Toughest Part of My Job: Facing conflict. I don’t like going against the grain but when it’s something I feel strongly about, I have to swallow hard and make it known. But it’s still a very tough thing for me to do.
Personality Trait I Admire In People: Being able to give of themselves. When my Dad was sick and dying, he had nurses from hospice. Even though their time with my family was short, they made us feel like we were the most important thing to them. I admire that.
