What is your definition of success?

Success can be defined in many ways. To me it is accomplished when I follow my heart. Whether it be as a business person, as a wife, or as a mother- As long as I am driving myself to do my best, I am successful.

What special challenges or advantages have you faced because you're a woman?

Luckily, I have not had to deal with very many challenges in reference to this. I think the world is starting to recognize that women and men are equally vital to the economic and political growth of our nation.

What has been your motivation?

I am a very self-motivated person. My own personal growth and quest for knowledge has always driven me to do my best. I love challenges and am constantly looking for new ways to achieve success.

How did you get started in this business?

I got my degree from Baylor University in Speech Communications. I then went to school for aesthetics and directed a medical spa in a cosmetic surgeons office for five years. There I took care of all of our marketing and that is what sparked my interest in the business. I started as an advertising representative just this past summer at the Weekly. I am very excited to be a part of such a great organization, I love going out to see my clients and helping to develop marketing campaigns that help my clients businesses to grow and expand. It is very exciting to see how advertising truly helps our economy to grow and helps my clients to expand there businesses and achieve their dreams.

Who was your mentor, and how have they influenced you?

My father and mother have always been my mentors. My father is a great businessman and is always very professional. He taught me about the importance of credibility and truthfulness in my work and in my life. He taught me that hard work really does pay off. My mother taught me about the importance of education and started me on my constant quest for knowledge. She taught me that if I don't know something, then it is probably because I didn't look hard enough for the answer. She also taught me about compassion and trust, two very important virtues that I apply to my life daily.
