- What made you join the Junior League of Memphis?
While being domiciled in Kansas City, MO, I volunteered fairly often and eventually met a few ladies that were very acclimated in their “placements.” Upon doing further research about the Junior League, I was interested in knowing if there was a League in Memphis and how I could improve my current skills, while learning from other like-minded women.

Currently, I am serving in my first active year.

I am the IT Lead Applications Analyst, of the Clinical Provider Team at Regional One Health.

As a child, I wanted to be a veterinarian. I love animals and have two Yorkshire Terrier puppies – Helzberg and Biltmore.
- Who inspires you?
Over the years, I have been inspired by multiple individuals. I credit my success to my mother who has persevered through breast cancer and who has always kept God and family at the forefront of her actions.
- What’s your favorite quote?
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy” – Martin Luther King, Jr. [I like to think they knew and depended on a strong woman as well.]
- What’s your favorite place in the world?
After studying abroad in Hong Kong, I traveled back three times after. I loved it there and would consider it one of my favorite places in the world.

The Path Made Clear by Oprah Winfrey

Oprah! From gardening to the book club, to being able to make a significant impact on others’ lives, in such a momentous way, would be marvelous.
11.What do you enjoy doing on the weekends?
I love going to the farmers markets, walking the puppies and spending time with my family.
- What’s your greatest achievement?
Of my many successes, my greatest achievement is knowing who and whose I am. In a world where there a limitless things in which one can “be,” so many find it difficult to be themselves. I find great gratification in knowing who I am.
- If you could master a skill that you don’t currently possess what would it be?
While I’m always learning, I would love to master SQL (computer programming language) and the Mandarin language.
- What’s something on your bucket list?
I wouldn’t call it a “bucket list,” however, I do have a list of items I’d like to achieve or further strides to conquer. I’d like to travel to each continent with my husband. We have family roots in Northern Ireland, Poland, Indonesia, Congo and Germany. There are so many places we have to explore.
