What is the best way to start the day?

A cup of coffee by the ocean, but if not, then I suppose going to HIIT class would be a close second.

Hickory & Oak in Bowling Green, KY. Not a bad item on the menu!

Do you have a personal motto?

You didn’t come this far, to only come this far.

What book or author has inspired you the most?

David Goggins has one of the most inspiring stories in his book Can’t Hurt Me. He was failing at every aspect of life and now he is a world record holder, a Navy SEAL, a triathlete…the list goes on.

Pesto pizza from Little Italy in downtown Auburn, Alabama.

Summer, because I enjoy going to the beach with my friends and family.

What are some small things that make your day better?

Being active gives me energy and confidence, so I love a good gym class or walk around the neighborhood. I’m also a cat mom, and I love that my furballs keep life interesting!

What is the best advice you’ve ever heard?

My grandparents always said, “you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.” Being kind to people goes a long way in a world where kindness is sometimes hard to find. You never know what people are battling; a smile or wave might make someone’s day.

If you could have an unlimited supply of one thing, what would it be and why?

Baby wipes. I love a good baby wipe, especially the ones that smell like shea butter or cucumber. They can be used for anything at home or on-the-go!

What three items would you bring on a deserted island and why?

I’d bring a fishing net, a sheet of heavy canvas, and a cast-iron kettle. The net is necessary for catching food; the canvas can be used for shelter and can be dried in the sun if it gets wet; the kettle can be used to collect water or cook food over a fire. Seems practical to me!

If you could bring back any fashion trend, what would it be?

Doubled-up, alternating neon socks with splatter paint, ruffled denim skirts. All you 80s babies know that the first day of 2nd grade was like a fashion show in our white Keds, with our ponytails on the side! I could also rock 1920s garb, and 1950s A-line dresses are a favorite too!

What is your go to karaoke song?

Suds in the Bucket by Sara Evans, it’s my go to!

What is one thing you have learned that has completely changed your life?

‘You can do hard things’ My dad instilled this in me from a young age. You can accomplish everything you set your mind to, no matter how big or small the task might be.

What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?

I love football. I played intramural flag football throughout college. I am a huge Green Bay Packer fan. I have been to Lambeau Field once and hope to go again soon. Throughout the fall, you can almost always find me watching football on the weekends.

What is one thing you cannot live without?

My dog Charlie, he is a rescue and is a real-life Scrappy-Doo.

What is the best way to start the day?

Enjoying a cup of hot coffee with breakfast.

Who is your hero and why?

Indra Nooyi because beyond being ranked on the Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women list, she was the first female CEO that I read about in a Pepsi case study during my last semester in college.

What is your favorite childhood memory?

Going on a cross country road trip with my family to Yosemite National Park and Yellowstone National.

What risks are worth taking?

The risks that you know will pay off in the long run and can help those around you.

What stereotype do you completely live up to?

Athlete, self-confidence and the ability to strategize while working as a team.

If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be?

I would be relaxing on a beach in 80-degree, sunny weather and eating fresh seafood!

If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?

South Texas! I have visited San Antonio and the King Ranch in Kingsville and found the scenery to be breathtaking. Also, the Mexican food down there is delicious!

If you could go back in time to change one thing, what would it be and why?

The only thing I would change is taking less hours per semester in college and staying another semester. I graduated in 3 years and, although I am proud of doing this, I found my time in college to be the best years of my life!

What is your favorite childhood memory?

My favorite childhood memory was getting surprised with a trip to Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida on Christmas Day!

If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?

Abraham Lincoln- one of the greatest Americans and U.S. presidents of all time! Lincoln was a major impact on America and the definition of freedom. I believe everyone could learn a thing or two from his leadership!
