Words to live by: "Courage is the most important of all virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently." – Maya Angelou.
What is your core philosophy for doing business? "Listen to the clients. Deliver. Always exceed their expectations."
Who is your role model and why? "My mom and dad, she was a quiet force that bettered her community by example. My dad was the strong silent type who always put his family first."
What was the funniest thing that has ever happened to you? "With a new home and new carpet, I invited a bunch of girlfriends over. I was scurrying around trying to make sure everything was perfect and fussed each time a guest chose to sit their plate or drink on the floor rather than on a nearby cocktail or end table. A close friend brought over her toddler and we took turns playing with him and bouncing him around. Well, apparently we bounced him one time too many when the baby decided to let it all out, all over the fresh new carpet. I laughed at the universal lesson that no ‘thing’ is as important as your loved ones. We still reminisce about this incident 15 years later."
