Why did you choose Globe University?
I chose Globe because they took my work experience and used that towards credit requirements. I also chose Globe because of the flexibility with scheduling classes.
What do you do to stay motivated?
I remember that I want to make my son Owen proud of me!
Who are your biggest supporters with school and why?
My husband and son! My husband has been there picking up the extra tasks, so it gives me more time to study and do homework. Owen will interrupt me in the middle of a homework assignment to give me a hug and brings a book to read. It reminds me to take a break and breathe.
What are you most proud of so far academically?
I have made Highest Honors!
What is your go-to study snack?
Pickles… I am currently pregnant with our second child

Favorite book: Water for Elephants
Favorite TV Show: Criminal Minds, Law and Order, Code Black and watching Bubble Guppies with Owen.
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you want with you?
My family for the company, a fishing pole because I love fishing, and matches to light a fire because I am always cold.
Favorite quote: “When you feel like quitting think about why you started.”
If you could choose someone to play you in a movie, who would it be/why? Dakota Johnson. She is beautiful and smart.
Tell me about a unique experience you’ve had: I was really nervous about drawing blood because it was something I have never done before but I did and got it on my first try! It was awesome!!
What do you do for fun?
Fishing, doing some crafts, shopping when I can, playing with Owen outside or swimming with him, going to the movies with my husband or just staying in and having a date night.
If you could spend 24 hours with anyone, who would it be and why?
My Grandma I miss her a lot and really need to write down her recipes.
What is your pet peeve?
When people don’t use their turn signals and when people over talk another person.
If you were granted one wish, what would it be? For a happy life!
