What do you like to do in your free time? I enjoy spending time with family and friends, crafting, exploring local museums in Kansas City, reading, attending church, exercising, and listening to music.
Who do you look up to and why? My mom is my hero. She passed away in 2020 from complications of Multiple Sclerosis. My mom was beautiful, tough, silly and stubborn. She was hands down one of the most memorable people you’d ever meet. She had the most amazing smile and infectious laugh. Through the experience of being her daughter and one of her caregivers, she taught me to be more compassionate and patient, to fiercely advocate and become educated, to extend grace and ask for help, to laugh and seek the beauty in life.
What’s your pet peeve? I have so many. LOL! Someone showing up late without providing notice. Someone chewing loudly. Someone wearing too much cologne or perfume. Someone clipping their nails in public. I could go on and on.
What’s your favorite Kansas City hangout or activity? I recently went on a tour of different museums in the KC area with my son for Spring Break. We went to the National Airline History Museum, Negro League Baseball Museum, The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Shoal Creek Living Museum, and Johnson-Atkins Farm Museum. We learned a lot about the Kansas City area and history. Our next adventure is to do a scavenger hunt around Kansas City.
Are you involved in any local organizations or charities or hobbies? I am actively involved in my church. I host a bible study for women in my church, sing in the choir, and volunteer in the women’s and children’s ministries. I have a goal to be able to participate in an oversees mission one of these days. A group of friends and I have taken on the challenge of training for various runs to raise awareness and funds for different charity groups including Autism, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, and Suicide. So far, we have run three 5ks, one 10k, and a half marathon.
What does a perfect Saturday in Kansas City look like? It would be during the fall when the weather is perfect. I would likely be walking through an apple orchard or pumpkin patch, soaking in all the beautiful fall colors, drinking apple cider, and quite possibly picking apples and pumpkins, while running around with my son.
Tell me about an interesting brush with fame or amazing truth about yourself. While living in San Francisco, I went skydiving. The skydiving instructor was from Independence, MO. We ended up having an hour-long conversation about Kansas City, which helped calm my nerves for my skydiving experience and gain a new appreciation for Kansas City.
