Here at Executive Elements, we like to feature fantastic women 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 women who have agreed to share with us their insights and secrets to success.
My Current Job/Company:
Director of Finance at the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio
I support the mission of the Furniture Bank by overseeing and completing all things financial and accounting related in the organization.
My faith, my family and serving others.
My best friend and Husband of 32 years, Michael, plus 3 amazing daughters and a son in-law – Lauren (Blair), 27; Haley, 25 and Adrienne, 21.
Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior.
Time with my family, especially vacations in warm places with lots of sunshine, blue skies and sand.
My Pet Peeve:
People who don’t take accountability for their actions.
Doterra Essential Oils and dark chocolate.
Faith, family, community, education, hard work, loving-kindness.
Exciting and joyful while living simply.
My Favorite Quote:
Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
The Lokai bracelet my daughter gave me. It is infused with elements from the highest and lowest points on earth and is a reminder to stay humble during life’s highs and hopeful during its lows.
My Advice to Young Women:
Dream big, work hard, be grateful and forgiving, be kind to others and give yourself grace. Start each new day with a positive attitude no matter how yesterday ended. Life is good!
How I Balance it All:
Plan for tomorrow and the days and weeks ahead while cherishing the moments of today, as I will never get them back! And I no longer sweat the small stuff (but it has taken me years to get here!).
