What would you tell your younger self?

I would tell my younger self that being in foster care and finally adopted are part of what make me unique but it does not define me.  I get to decide what I do in life.

How do you balance your work and personal life? Often times one has more importance, and we’re curious to know how you’ve handled the balance.

The key to balancing your work and personal life is to devote time to each.  Trying to decide on one or the other can get overwhelming because we often want to do it all.  Carve out time for what you need and set boundaries.  We often want to be all to everyone else but one can’t give what they don’t have.  Self-care is NOT selfish.

What’s your favorite ice cream?

My favorite ice cream is Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia.
