What Do You Love About Your Business?
I really love being able to help people protect what matters most to them whether that’s their assets, their future, or their family. Many people don’t know a lot about their insurance and I love that I can be their trusted advisor and help them to understand why protecting themselves is so important.

What Do You Get Out of Being a Member of YPN?
I just joined RTYPN this summer and have loved forming new connections, both personal and business! It’s a great place to network with all different types of people, and has great volunteer opportunities as well.

What is Your Favorite Special Event in the Region?
Oh gosh, there’s so many! My absolute favorite is probably the Reno Rodeo. I’m a country girl at heart!

If You Weren’t At Work Right Now, You’d Be …
At a dog show or out hunting with my Salukis.

Your Favorite Time of Day Is:

Because …
Nevada sunsets are the best!

If You Could Take Anyone Out For a Cup of Coffee, Who Would It Be?
Joanna Gaines

Because I would want to know her secrets to being such a successful business women while juggling her family at the same time. I’m convinced she’s wonder woman.

To You, Networking is About …
Building new business relationships that can be mutualistic.

If You Could Fix One Problem in Our Community, What Would It Be?
I think Reno needs to continue to become more “green.” Developing a more sustainable environment in the community will encourage people to do the same at home as well.

How would you fix it?
I think it starts with education. Whether that is education from schools, neighborhoods, politicians, etc., the community needs to know why a sustainable lifestyle and economy is so important.

If You Were a Wild Animal, Which One Would You Be and Why?
I would be a hawk because not only could I fly (who doesn’t want to fly?), but hawks are extremely loyal yet independent and very smart and observant!

A penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?
He is here to tell me that I’ve won an all expense paid vacation to somewhere tropical! Whoo hoo!

If you had to choose a ‘walk out’ song, what would it be?
Sun Daze by Florida Georgia Line! That’s my jam.
