What inspires you?
Nature and animals inspire me. I can spend hours hiking or just walking around the Safari Park watching the gorillas play, meerkats working together or listening to the birds sing. That’s my idea of a great day.

Jane Goodall. She spends her life advocating for animal’s rights and she’s a huge environmentalist. She turned her passion for animals to action.

My friends and I like to have kitty play dates where they bring their cats to my house. We hang out while they play.

Quality time with my friends and my husband, doing errands, playing Mario Kart or going to Temecula to see my mom.

I have a large family and I enjoy spending time with family whenever possible. I have a high service ethic and my passion is assisting others. With that said, my hero or role model is Mother Teresa.
