“The most rewarding aspect of my personal life is my family and I am honored to be involved in my children’s lives and share what I have learned and watch them grow to be the best they can be. The most rewarding aspect of my professional life is giving back and mentoring others. I am honored to be a part of the WPPI family and share what I have learned and watch others grow to be the best they can be.”
