Each week, we feature a fantastic new woman we think you should know. Some of these women are clients, some are friends, some are women we’ve only just met. But they all have this in common: they are dynamic, interesting gals who have agreed to share with us their insights and secrets to success.

My Movie: “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.” I just love how Mr. Smith (James Stewart) does not give up and sticks to what he believes. I also secretly have a fascination with politics!
My Quote on Life: God is Good. Awhile back I read the book The Road Less Traveled. The first sentence in the book is “Life is difficult.” It then goes on to say that once you really realize that it is difficult things do not seems so bad. When life gets especially difficult I remind myself that God is not going to give me anything I cannot handle.
My Accessory: Fun jewelry.
How I Balance it All: I try to spend a few minutes each day thinking and praying. This helps me to focus on what is really important.
