If you knew then, what you know now, what piece of advice would you give yourself? It’s always about the politics!

What do you want to be when you grow up? A mom

What is the most interesting job you’ve ever had that was not IT related? I worked 3rd shift in a factory (in the summer) where they kept the doors open all night. Every night, when I got to work, I had to coat myself with bug spray in order to keep the mosquitos away.

Tell us something your colleagues don't know about you. That I used to be a cowgirl… seriously, I owned a horse, and still have the saddle and tack equipment in my garage. It's still a dream of mine to own a horse or two again.

What was the last book you read? Flowers in the Attic

What's one thing you can't live without? My dogs. I am their hero!

If you could meet one famous person, dead or alive, who would it be? Elvis, at about age 30’ish. He is utterly amazing!

What's the best place you've ever travelled to? I’ve been to Hawaii and Las Vegas, but since we starting going on cruises a couple of years ago… I just love the whole cruise experience.

Do you have any hidden talents? Yes, of course I do!

What do you consider to be your proudest moment in life so far? Since I was raised on welfare throughout childhood, earning my Bachelor’s Degree completely on my own is something I’m super proud of.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever received? It's not advice I’ve received but things I live by … EVERY story has two sides! and Perception is NOT reality!
