What are your favorite activities when you are not working?
I have a passion for physical fitness! I love working out by running, lifting weights or taking rigorous boot camp style fitness classes. I have won many fitness competitions over the years as a result.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
My dad would always say—"When life comes at you hard and you don't know what to do: K1 and K2'." (Knee #1 and Knee #2.) In other words, you better get on your knees and PRAY!
What advice would you give to someone who's considering finishing their degree, or starting for the first time as an adult?
The time to do it is now. Life is so short and tomorrow is promised to no one. Make every effort to achieve your goals and turn your dream into reality while you are here.
