How would you describe your work in a six word sentence?
My work is an “eye opener”.
What makes you smile? Why?
My children make me smile. I love to see their personalities develop over time. I love to see their interactions with others and their interest in exploring and learning new things.
What was the last book you read that had an impact? What were your thoughts on it?
Lovely Bones. Makes me realize how much goes on in this world that I am unaware of. Scary! Very good book and easy to read. I would definitely read it again. It was able to show both sides of loss and grief and how it affects everyone involved.
What was the most interesting place you have traveled? Why?
I’ve been to many states however, I would like to say that Austin, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee would be the most interesting. Beautiful cities and lots to do.
What is the word you use most often?
What was the funniest thing you have ever experienced?
I am not sure why but this is hard for me to answer. I have experienced funny things but cant really pinpoint one.
What is a small act of kindness you experienced and will never forget?
My grandmother gave a lady a pair of gloves. We entered Walmart to get a few things and she grabbed a pair of gloves. I didnt question why she was getting them but when we exited she handed them to a lady who was gathering money for the Salvation Army. It was very cold out and she didn’t have any gloves.
When did you first know you wanted to work in the helping field?
When I attended my first Psychology class. I loved the class and really connected with the content.
If you could be an insect, which would you be?
Butterfly. They are pretty and can fly.
What was the last movie you saw? Thoughts on it?
The Greatest Showman. The movie wasn’t one of my favorites but I would watch it again. Beautiful love story, which I always love.
What is the most recent photo saved to your phone? Why did you take the photo?
My children. I was trying to capture a moment that I love. We read in the evenings before bed. I know this wont last forever so I try to take these moments slowly.
Coffee or tea?
Tea (cold preferably 🙂
What was your latest binge-watch show?
What emotion do you think is most difficult to express?
How do you build trust in clients?
Listening and understanding the client. Develop an understanding of their likes and dislikes.
If you could have dinner with anyone, whether they are dead or alive, who would it be?
God. I would love to learn and grow more. I have a lot more to learn from that man 🙂
What is your favorite childhood memory? Why?
Going camping with my family. It was something so simple but loved going.
Did you have a role model when you were growing up? Who was it? Why?
My grandmother. She was strong minded and was super sweet to everyone, no matter how they treated her. My father-who always adapted to the situation. He was someone you can count on and was a good worker.
