When you were 5 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up? 

I really wanted to work in Business. I wasn’t sure what, but I knew that I wanted to work in a large city like New York or Chicago.  You should see my Kindergarten picture, I was carrying a brief case, not a backpack.

 

If you were stranded on a desert island and were allowed three books, what three would you take?
I would bring a survival guide and at least 2 books I haven’t read from Jodi Picoult, one of my favorite authors. 

 

If you could pick one celebrity or historical figure to have lunch with, who would it be? 
That’s tough because there are so many historical figures that I am intrigued by or whom I admire.  I would either pick Mary, Jesus’ mother, or Mother Theresa.

 

What do you love most about working for Select Resources?
I love that I get to help others while being able to balance my own life with 4 young children.
