What should your business card say you do? Do it all with a smile.

Place of birth: Casper, Wyo.

When did you move to Moffat County and what brought you here?

I’ve been here 25 years. My mom and dad got divorced, so I’ve always lived both places.

Describe your morning routine.

Wake up, let my dog out, take a shower, make coffee and go to work.

How would your friends describe you?

Outgoing, hardworking and a go-getter.

Have you ever had a book change your life? What was it and why?

“Angels Among Us.” It’s a near-death experience. It made me more grateful for what I have and really appreciate what I have now before it’s gone.

A lawyer.

Wonder Woman.

What’s the worst reason you’ve received/given for breaking up with someone?

It’s not you, it’s me.

If you had to give up one of your five senses, which would it be?

Probably smelling. I don’t think it’s as important as the rest of them.

What band or performer would you stand in line to get tickets for?

Tim McGraw.

What music, book or movie are you ashamed to admit you love?

Cosmo Girl, because I’m 25.

What would you do if you won $10 million?

I’d give money to Hurricane Katrina and Rita relief, I’d start a business (clothing or interior design), buy my mom a home and I’d live life to the fullest.
