What are your motivations in life?

My motivations in life are my family, my faith, and using my gifts to their full potential. 

I’m really focused on always trying to pour into others the things I’ve learned and experience throughout life, and on the same token, maintain a mindset that allows my own cup to stay full. 

What’s your training mantra or favorite quote? 

“1 step at a time.”
