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:

My work focuses on leveraging the time, talent and treasure of volunteers and philanthropists to support students and strengthen the College of Nursing.
My family, my community and education.
My husband Matt and our two sons Will (4) and Tyson (18 months).

A great book.
My Pet Peeve:
Doing things a certain way because “that’s the way we’ve always done it”.
A long run by myself.
My parents always put an emphasis on the importance of education throughout my childhood, which has transformed into a life-long passion for me.
Happy, healthy, fun and full of learning.
Spending time with my family and friends and watching my sons grow and learn.

My Quote on Life:
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin in serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” (Emerson)
My dogs! We have two sweet, faithful pups that round out our family and are always by my side.
My Advice to Young Women:
Find a partner who will help you follow your dreams and do the same for him/her.
How I Balance it All:
Sometimes I don’t, but every day I try to be the person who deserves the wonderful life I have.
