1. What were your high school goals?
I was sure I was going to be a ballerina! I spent hours daily in class and rehearsal in order to perform and loved it. In fact, with the help of ballet scholarship money from Butler University, my undergraduate degree was in Dance.

2. What event in childhood had greatest impact on you?
Moving was the event (or events) that most impacted my life. There was the obvious impact of adapting to change and how that drew my family closer together, but there was also the effect of experiencing being an outsider and having the opportunity to recreate yourself through the people you chose as friends and things you put energy and passion into. You really learn what part of yourself is truly you and what part is the reflection of your surroundings.
