What do you like most about your work? I LOVE the team I work with. You have never met a more committed or passionate group. Do you live in Ballantyne? I moved to Charlotte three years ago and live right outside Ballantyne. What did you want to be when you were a kid? An OB-GYN, then a talk show host like Oprah. Any life-management tips? I am my best self when there is balance in my life — family, work, community, church, personal time. I am intentional about tending to each area. What do you eat for breakfast? I have a smoothie Monday through Friday. I make them on Sundays and freeze them for the week. There are no rules on the weekends, but I do appreciate a good bowl of grits! What are you reading now? I just finished "The Sun Does Shine" by Anthony Ray Hinton; it shook me to my core. How do you spend your free time? Being an aunt — going to games, cooking, having sushi — whatever my nieces and nephews want to do. What's No.1 on your bucket list? Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and going on a safari. A visit to Japan to enjoy the world's best sushi chefs is a close second. What charitable organization is important to you? The Charlotte YMCA. I believe in the mission and the work happening there. What is something people would never guess about you? I was a painfully shy kid. I credit my grandmother (and braces!) for helping me break out of my shell.
