  • Lifelong to do List: Run a marathon, improve my golf game and to never stop learning new things
  • If I could switch places with someone: It would have to be with my daughter, Herason. The opportunities and potential for a young girl today are endless.

  • What do you hope to accomplish by running the Race (other then winning one million bucks)? Spending quality one-on-one time with my husband. We both could use some extra, uninterrupted time and attention from the other. Additionally, I plan to re-enter the professional workplace soon and I hope this experience makes me a better job candidate.
  • Pet peeve about your teammate: Joe is a very intense and short tempered individual who thinks he's right all the time!
