Her Values: ‘I value my family, my friends and my faith. I cherish life and see it as a gift to be embraced and treasured. I value personal growth and desire to maximize my own potential and purpose – and to help others realize theirs. Commitment, courage, integrity, generosity, hard work, faithfulness, creativity and adventure, are all virtues I value highly.’
