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 gals who have agreed to share with us their insights and secrets to success.
My Current Job/Company:
Executive Director at the Downtown YMCA
Through healthy living, youth development and social responsibility, we strengthen our community.
My faith, my family, my Y
Jeff (for 21 wonderful years), Bishop (17 ) and Ashton (16)
My team at the Y. They work long hours to help those in need around us.
My run. I try to run 4 times a week – gives me a chance to be with me.
My Pet Peeve:
Wine. Sweet Treats.
My God, my husband (we met when I was 16 years old – we grew up together)
Exciting – ready to change the world!
My family around the dinner table – talking and laughing about their day.

My Quote on Life:
“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.”
― Arthur Ashe
My Advice to Young Women:
Surround yourself with good people. Purge all the negative thinkers.
How I Balance it All…
Keep what’s first – first – no matter what. A good support system is essential – a wonderful husband, sweet kids and great Y friendships. They all keep me grounded.
