What part of your day do you look forward to the most? *
I look forward to my evenings most. When the kids are in bed I have personal time to gather my thoughts, complete necessary tasks, and decompress for the day.
What's the biggest risk you've ever taken and why? *
The biggest risk I have ever taken was quiting my full time private practice job without a new job in sight. I decided that it was time for me to live life and “work” on my own terms. I am still figuring out exactly what that means but as of now I do not have any regrets.
What do you want to leave behind? *
I want to leave behind a legacy of love, strength, and resilience to my two girls. I want to leave them with resources to create more opportunities to live a fulfilling life.
