Describe one thing you loved to do growing up.
Going on summer vacations with my family. In particular, I enjoyed road trips. I think I used to pack my bag weeks in advance! I was a planner at an early age!
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you want?
A sand wedge with golf balls (to work on my bunker shots), music, and sunscreen.
What is the biggest lesson you learned from a client?
To stop and remember that things that you may take for granted are brand new and interesting experiences to your kids, and to enjoy the small moments where they learn about the world.
