Q: When did you move to Shawnee, and what brought you here?

Q: What did you want to be when you grew up?

Q: What’s the biggest risk you’ve ever taken?

Q: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
A: Don’t eat yellow snow… I wish I could be more profound. But on a side note, I do have little boys and two dogs, so I think it is good advice I give them in the winter.
Q: What three things would you want people to know about you?
A: 1. I love being a mom to my crazy little boys more than anything in the world. 2. I am trying to discover new places to eat with my husband all the time in the Kansas area, but I really think I could eat at La Bodega everyday. 3. I love where I live and I really love all my neighbors. I could not have been more lucky with the people that surround my family.
Q: What’s your ideal vacation spot?
A: If there is a beach, my family, good food and a glass of wine, I’m in.
