Occupation: Social Worker by heart and profession
Describe to us your typical day at work
Two of my four amazing daughters have special needs, so my days are filled by caring for them. That often looks like ensuring that they have a safe and active social life or driving them to doctors appointments and fighting for them to receive the best care available. My oldest daughter is pregnant with my first grandchild (a girl!) so my free time is spent knitting and shopping for her.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about helping others. I receive the greatest joy from working with families and children. Encouraging and assisting families to obtain goals, reach milestones and build firm foundations for the future.
What do you see as the role of a woman in society?
Women are powerful beings. We are able to give birth to nations and be change agents. Once we can recognize that role for what it is, we can pull together and pooling our resources produces mass positive growth and change.
Tell us where you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself traveling the world, sharing my God given gift to assist and show people how to live better. I also see motivational speaking on some level, but I’m not sure what that looks like just yet.
How can women support each other grow?
Women can be change agents for good or bad. When we encourage, motivate and empower each other everyone gains strength. When must stop being afraid to share our stories. Through our spoken history, we can simultaneously promote strength and build a better future.
My favorite quote:
All it takes for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing.
