What is your perfect weekend day? Describe what you would do and who you would be doing it with!

The perfect weekend day for me is spending time with my family. I have three amazing daughters and we could literally do anything, anywhere as long as we are together it’s always the best day! We enjoy spending time outdoors, hiking, sightseeing, traveling to new places and sometimes just an evening wrapped up in warm blankets by a cozy fire with conversation and laughter is the absolute best.

Tell us a childhood story about when you were living your best life!

I grew up surrounded by a wonderful family with lots of love. I had the best aunts and grandparents and was spoiled by them all. They were always loving and supportive of my dreams and truly made me believe that I could do anything I set my heart to.

What is your favorite part of your daily job that isn't part of your job description?

I absolutely love those sweet little hugs and “I love you” from the little ones that come to visit. It is a reward to know that their experience was positive and that they found comfort in their care.
