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:
Executive Director, Drug Free Action Alliance
I manage a statewide nonprofit agency with the mission to promote healthy lives through the prevention of substance abuse.
Praising God, loving my family and the mission of my job.
Ed (loving husband), Michelle (beautiful daughter, her wonderful husband, Ian and my endearing grandchildren, Finn, 9, Beckett 7, Rourke 5, Cormac 2), Jennifer (beautiful daughter and her wonderful husband, Mark).
My Hero or Heroes:
My two daughters who are as talented, intelligent and kind as they are beautiful.
To the country with lush greenery, flowers and flowing creeks.
My Pet Peeve:
Those who say we can’t instead of saying let’s try.
Modest, country, close immediate and extended family, grounded in church and civic participation.
Busy trying to fit in all the wonderful things yet to be done or experienced.
My Favorite Quote:
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” (Edmund Burke)
My advice to Young Women:
Let nothing stand in your way if the dream is worth having.
How I Balance it All:
Some days I don’t – healthy eating, consistent exercise and enough sleep help.
