What would you be doing if you weren’t doing what you do now and why? I really don’t know, but it would probably be something that helps people. I enjoy people so much and have a passion to help, so that being my desire, I’m sure that is what I would do.
What is the best part of your job? Meeting and helping people.

Favorite food: The things I should never eat, pizza and pasta.
Favorite writer and/or book: I don’t have much time for reading books with memos, email and training, but when I do it is the King James Bible.
Favorite music and/or performer: I really love all music from gospel to rock, but I lean mostly toward country and one of my favorites is Carrie Underwood.
Share your favorite memory in your life to date: I have so many it is really hard to choose just one, but I know that the day I got the bank job, I also got my driver’s license, so I was on top of the world.
Name something you find very irritating and why: Drivers going too slow in the left hand lane and drivers pulling out in front of you and then turning off. I feel like they aren’t respecting the other drivers.
What is the best advice you were ever given and who gave it? A colleague once told me, no matter what, never, never, never give up. And I never have.
What else would you like the people of Carroll County to know about you? You can travel the world over but you won’t find anything any prettier than these mountains or better than these people. I have been very blessed.
