I wanted to be a nurse. I loved the candy doctor kits my mom used to buy me at our small town department store. It was so fun to pretend to give shots and medicine. I never had trouble getting a patient, because the candy medicine was so good.
I have always been titled by my family as "the peacemaker." I never liked hurting anyone’s feelings, I always wanted to fix problems and I always wanted to make others feel better. I guess you could say I was destined to be a nurse. I get great satisfaction in giving of myself to help others. I love people in general, love the relationships that have been formed because of my profession and hope that, before I leave this life, I will have made a difference in the lives of others, as so many have made in mine.
What does success looks like to you?  
Success is happiness in knowing that you have made a difference in the lives of others. That being said, I feel very successful.
Do you serve on any charitable organizations' boards or committees?  
I belong to the American Academy of Medical Esthetic Practitioners, American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine and the American Society of Plastic Surgery Nurses. I have been a Tri Kappa Member for twenty years and our organization raises money for Riley Hospital. I am currently working on a not-for-profit organization that will provide micropigmentation to those affected by breast cancer or any type of cancer, where they need eyebrows pigmented because of hair loss, or areola pigment, after breast cancer.

Best business advice you ever received and who gave it?
My parents always said, "You can do anything, if you put your mind to it." So true! I love to be challenged, because the competitive side of me kicks in and I am motivated and determined to win the challenge. I generally do! Ha! Who professionally inspires you? My family, friends, coworkers and patients. I receive inspiration and encouragement a little every day from those I have known or have just met. I am very blessed! What is your biggest pet peeve? Space and Location. Our practice is growing so fast that we our outgrowing the space and location. What was your first job? I was 16 years old and worked for a nursing home. I worked at The Methodist Memorial Home in Warren, Indiana. I made $3.75 an hour working on the Alzheimer's unit. I loved the people, their stories and the care I provided. I still remember the patients that made a difference in my life.  Where would you go on your dream vacation if cost and time were not a factor? I would love to go to Bora Bora and stay at the Four Winds Resort. The island pictures are breathtaking. The spa offers luxurious treatments in the privacy of your bungalow, while facing the Pacific Ocean. If you were to describe yourself as a shoe, what kind would you be and why?  I would have to say a classy red wedge. It is bright in color, it makes a statement, shows strength and boldness and is versatile.
