What talent do you wish you had? If I had my way, I would be an X Games extreme snowboarder. The scenery would be incredible, and the adrenaline rush from all the cool moves and tricks would be amazing!
Seriously, though, I wish I could play a musical instrument. Pianos and violins have always captivated me. Their beautiful sound draws people in, and I think being able to play for friends and loved ones would be a real gift.
Who has had the greatest influence on you and why? My parents. They taught me compassion, loyalty and a desire to know Christ. This year they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary and that is an amazing inspiration! Their love, support, trust, encouragement and commitment gave me the lens through which I view life.

What do you consider your greatest accomplishment? I haven’t reached it yet! I’ll let you know when I do!

If you could give one piece of advice to young people, what would it be? People will either inspire you or drain you – choose wisely!
