» Last thing she ate that she loved: The coq au vin at A la Maison in Ardmore.

» Role models: I’ve always looked up to women who aren’t afraid to be themselves and who really have a heart to care deeply for others. I’m fortunate that I can see that in women in my everyday life—like my mom, my sister and my church friends. 

» Perfect vacation: A warm, beachy place with my husband, with lots of food and yummy drinks with umbrellas in them. 

» What she likes most about herself: I can get excited about almost anything.
