What’s your favourite way to give back to the community?
Through charity events. And my favorite would have to be Operation Christmas Child. Every year Samaritan’s Purse will take donation of shoe boxes filled with simple gifts, such as toys, clothes or hygiene product and delivery them to children around the world in need.

Do you have a passion project outside of work?
I design handmade kids hair accessories for fun. I make them mostly for my daughter, friends and family. I do hope to eventually show case my craft at The One of a Kind Show.

What’s one quote you live by?
“The chain is only as strong as its weakest link, for if that fails the chain fails and the object that it has been holding up falls to the ground.” -Thomas Reid. I am a strong believer in team work. We should always work to lift each other up to achieve success as whole.
