My professional motto is “life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful.”

I do what I do because I believe data and what people do with it can make a difference. Every day is a challenge and every day I learn something new. We may not be saving lives, we are adding value and helping others think differently and make an impact.

My alma mater is the University of Nebraska-Kearney.

My favorite invention of all time is electricity.

Life would be a lot simpler if everyone would just do what I wanted!! However, my nice answer is… if everyone would just slow down and support each other and look for the best in others.

If I were an animal, I would be a wise, old owl.

You’ll never catch me sitting still!

Three things you would be surprised to know about me are:

I shoot people in the office with Nerf guns.
I love to scare people.
I run really fast.
All of those things can be blamed on my older brothers.

Sometimes people say I look like a gazelle (even though I hate to run).

My first order of business as a super hero would be to rid the world of villains.

I love kindness.
I can’t stand mean people.

The best place on earth is a quiet spot with sunshine and blue water.

I spend my free time with my boys and my hubby – wishing my kids weren’t growing so fast.
