Who am I?

Well, first and foremost, I am a wife, daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, cousin, aunt, friend, and a dog mom, before anything else. I value who I am and allow my life experiences to guide what I do and how I interact with the world around me. I believe in bringing every facet of my identity into every room that I enter and to every table that I take a seat at. This enriches each contributions that I make.
