Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?
The most positive influence in my life is my amazing husband. I don't think there is another person on this earth who would give it to me straight, regardless that I am his wife. He doesn't sugar coat anything and he gives me a different perspective on the decisions I have made or am preparing to make

If you could give advice to a new Airman, what would it be and why?
My advice for a new Airman would be keep your standards high, set a positive example on and off-duty, always take the chance to learn, and show the initiative to do so. Take every opportunity to expand your horizons and ask for feedback as well as give it.

What is one goal that you have already accomplished, or would like to accomplish, during your Air Force career?
The goal I would like to accomplish in my Air Force career is to complete my degree and attain the rank of chief master sergeant.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?
The most interesting place that I have traveled is Italy. There is so much history in that country that it is unbelievable. I visited Rome, Pisa, Milan, Venice and quite a few other places. The country itself is very interesting, but the food, especially the pizza, is even more interesting.

If you had the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
If I had the opportunity to meet anyone in the world it would have be my ancestors. I have spent years searching for family history and I don't know of anyone before 1870. I would love to know where my family originated.
