Who has been or is a positive influence in your life and why?
The most positive influence in my life has been my father. He dedicates his life to helping others, and served as a teacher and high school principal for 33 years. He instilled the value of hard work and that a person's character is their most valued asset.

What accomplishments are you most proud of and why?
I am proud of my family's service to our nation. All of my siblings and my husband have served in the armed forces. As a flight commander, I am proud of our Airmen who work hard to make the mission happen.

The theme for Women's History Month this year is, "Our History Is Our Strength." What meaning does this have for you?
"Our History Is Our Strength" means that from our common background we can build a strong future. Understanding the sacrifices of the women before us provides focus and strength to women of today, to continue to work for equality and know that they can make a difference.
