Describe your process:  Start every day with a smile. Stay client-focused, embrace change, and be open to challenges that can lead you to something you didn’t know was possible.

Quote relevant to your work life:  “Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.” – Stephen Covey

What is that life changing song or album:  “Chicago at Carnegie Hall” – I wore out my cassette tape playing this album over and over! It inspired me to join the school band and learn to play the trumpet.

Who is the best movie villain:  Cruella De Vil from 101 Dalmations. That girl is wicked!

What is the next thing on your bucket list:  Visit Polaine Bakery in St Germain Des Pres in Paris, France to assist in my quest to master the making of croissants.

Where would you relocate if you were forced to leave the country:  If I were “forced” to relocate, I’d move to Alberta, Canada. I can see myself living in a farmhouse at the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, close enough to Edmonton to occasionally take in the city life. It’s also close enough our children could occasionally visit in the summertime!
