“I love being open to opportunities and learning new things. My family is extremely important to me, and I have taught my three children to be kind, thoughtful, caring people. It is those traits that I carry with me. I also want to be there for people who are hurting and need someone. We need to be the good we see in the world, to be examples to our fellow humans, and to admit when we are wrong and to apologize for any hurt we may have caused. Be of good humor. I love to laugh and be goofy. Life is short. Dance like no one is watching.”
