  • Favorite ice cream flavor: Vanilla topped with loads of chocolate syrup
  • Best piece of advice I've been given: The grass is not always greener on the other side; it's greener where you water and fertilize it. Above all, lead by example and be kind in everything you do.

  • Ask me about: Growing up in rural Northern Indiana on a farm, my experiences traveling abroad to various countries, and my bucket list of places to visit.
