Who’s the most influential person in your life and why?
My mother is the most influential person in my life. She’s my person. She’s my rock. She is smart, caring, fun and fearless. She is a retired principal and English teacher from Metro Nashville schools. To this day, she still has old students coming up to her thanking her for changing their lives. It’s amazing to see. She’s not only a superwoman to me, but to many other people around the city. She continues to give back to young kids and her community by volunteering. I aspire to be like her.

If you could give someone some great life advice, what would it be?
I would give the advice to do something that purely gives you joy outside of your day to day job. For me, that’s writing. We all need an escape and creative outlet. Find a hobby that you can relieve stress with.
