My dad taught me the value of hard work and always doing the right thing, even if it doesn’t benefit me. At times, he held multiple jobs to provide for my mom, my siblings, and me. His example has shaped my career and leadership style to never ask of my team something I’m not willing to do myself.

Feet – the height of Young’s High Bridge in Kentucky, which I have bungee jumped from four times and counting! One of my biggest fears is heights, so this forces me to face and overcome that.
