Who is someone you admire, and why?

Have to say my mother. For raising 8 children along with my dad and always instilling in us the value of education and what it can do for us in life. Going back to college to obtain a degree herself as an older adult along with being everything to us all, I really admire my mom for all she’s preserved through in life while still being a mom a kid would dream to have.

Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about?

Some people are surprised when they see and hear me play a song on the piano. Don’t be fooled though, I only know a little bit. Wish I would’ve taken lessons! The piano to me is a magical instrument.

Flashback to when you were 10 years old. What do you want to be when you grow up?

I’m sure I wanted to be an actor when I was 10. Watching the younger kids on Nickelodeon and Disney channel daily always made me wish I could be like one of them with my own show. I soon felt that I didn’t necessarily have the personality to act so I’m happy to have found my way behind the camera!

What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working?

Honestly I’m happiest when I’m doing something to make someone else happy! I live to help others and enjoy knowing that someone can look at me as someone they can count on to come through for them when they’re in need, whatever that may be. 

What’s a work-related accomplishment you’re most proud of?

I was just recently named as one of “Indy’s Best and Brightest” within the Media, Entertainment and Sports fields amongst 9 other finalists, by the Junior Achievement of Central Indiana. So to know that all the time I’ve put into learning and growing in my career and the work that I’ve done is not only being seen by many but has enabled me to be recognized for an award, means everything to me and will keep me pushing forward!
