Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?
The most positive influence in my life has been my father, who always encourages me to follow my dreams, and is 100 percent supportive. Also, my mother who is the hardest working person I know and has inspired me to always do my best. I strive to give my children the love and support my parents have given me.

What would you like to accomplish during your Air Force career?
I would like to be an instructor at the Mental Health Technical School so I can assist younger Airmen in preparing for the mental health career field.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?
The most interesting place I have been to is Disney World because it does not matter what age you are. You will have a blast.

What is your favorite book/ movie and why?
Unfortunately, I cannot possibly choose a favorite, I have too many. However, my favorite quote is by Malcolm Forbes, "Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are." It just reminds me to appreciate what you have in your life and never take it for granted.

If you have the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
I would like to meet Annie Oakley because she was one of America's first female celebrities.
