Tell us a little about your family.
I’m married to a wonderful man, and have an awesome son (who is also a stinker at times), a step-daughter who is pregnant and a step-son, who has a 3-year old daughter and 1-year old son.

What was the best compliment you’ve ever received?
One time someone told me that “[I’m] pretty and I look like Faith Hill” (ha ha – that was back in the day and a 100 lbs lighter). The best compliment really was receiving thank you emails from a woman I worked with – here is part of an email I received from her:  “I have been wanting to send you a note telling you what a pleasure it has been working with you.  You have always been so kind and pleasant, it truly has been a pleasure!  I do hope that our paths cross again; I would consider that a blessing.” She also sent a message saying “It has been a pleasure working with you.  You have done a great job in an extremely difficult position and always handled yourself with grace and dignity.” Those emails mean so much.
