What does leadership mean to you?
Leadership means having something to offer, guiding others in a direction. And a leader gives goals to others.
Do you believe you’re a leader?
I don’t consider myself a leader. I believe I’m more of an encourager to others.
Who’s a leader that inspired you in the past?
Gwen Shamblin. She started the Weigh Down Ministries. She teaches people how to change a bad behavior into good behavior. And the fruit of that is weightloss, smoking cessation, quitting alcoholism and other bad habits that hurt us.
Tell me about a time when someone needed you and you were able to help them find a goal or resource.
My daughter. She’s a teen and I was able to point her in the right direction and help her meet people that will be a positive influence in her life and help her do the right thing.
What else would you like to share?
I’m in a different place than I thought I would be — but I’m not sorry. I have no regrets and I’m always excited to learn, grow, and change.
