What is your favorite food?

My favorite food is comfort food: stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy. Yum! In fact, if Wyatt (my son) was named after what I craved the most while I was pregnant, his name would be mashed potatoes and gravy!

What is your ideal vacation?

Camping under the stars near any sort of water, with pillows and blankets, lanterns, a fire, a camper pie iron, with my family and good friends.

If you were trapped on a deserted island, what three things would you bring?

My knife, my mermaid tail, and a camper pie iron.

What is a unique talent that you have?

I can curl my tongue into a four leaf clover

What do you enjoy most about working at the Boys & Girls Club?

I love working with different community members and organizations that we work with and I love working with every single person at the Club everyday, we are family, which is why they call me mom!

1. What is your favorite type of food?

Because I was raised in Nebraska, I would say fried chicken, mashed potatoes & gravy and CORN ON THE COB (only Nebraska corn!)

2. What is your ideal vacation?
My ideal vacation is touring National Parks - My next one I hope to see is Glacier. I also love Blues festivals - especially outdoors.

3. If you were trapped on an island, what three things would you bring with you?
I can't think of being trapped on an island, I don't like water very much (coming from the middle of Nebraska!) so the chances of me being anywhere near an island are slim to none.

4. What is a unique talent you have?
My unique talent is connecting with all kinds of individuals, and sometimes in a very deep way!

5. What do you enjoy most about working at the Boys & Girls Club?

I enjoy each person I work with. I find the staff to be amazing, caring, individuals. The volunteers give so much of their time, talent & treasure, they are awesome. The donors are super people all the way around. I am blessed to love what I do for a living so much!
