List 3 words to describe your role at GALE
Stimulating, Collaborative, Dynamic

What are you passionate about?
For as long as I can remember I’ve always been passionate about vintages and antiques; I love to surround myself with items from the past which have a history and tell a story.  So, for me, when it came time to purchase property, it was decided it had to be a Century Home. It was this that lead me to becoming a member of the Milton Historical Society, with our goal to preserve the History of Milton as it expands and develops.

What is the best piece of advice you ever received?
Follow the compass, not the map. Straight lines are rigid and don’t allow you to pivot when necessary.  If you follow the compass, it will always allow you to take on obstacles while guiding you in the right direction.

What is one Podcast you would recommend?
Ted Talks.  All of them.

What is your personal mantra?
When feeling overwhelmed and doubtful, 6 words to help overcome fear, anxiety and uncertainty… “I am.” “I can”. “I will.” Introduced to me by my father around the age of 7, you can find these words written atop of every school test I took until the day I graduated University.  My adulthood mantra has evolved to “Always Deliver.”

If you had a side hustle what would it be?
I actually have one! I create large-scale Charcuterie Boards and Spreads for Events.  There’s nothing like a sprawling, robust, cascading, colorfully delicious Charcuterie Board to compliment an event or celebration.  There’s a Charcuterie Board for every occasion!
