Do you have any nicknames?
Princess, Queenie, & Lolo

When is your birthday?
(Month and Day) May 3rd

Hometown / Where have you lived?
My home town is Ocala, but I really loved living in Jacksonville, FL.  It was nice being in a city with an NFL team and being close to the beach.

When did you become interested in art and design?
I have always had an eye for art although I do not possess the talents to bring it to life.  It’s part of the reason I love my job today.  It’s nice to have such a talented staff of designers who bring great visions to works of art.

What is your favorite part of your job?
I love that every day is different! We have customers all over the US & Canada and its interesting getting to talk to people from all over.  There is always a different project to work on or a different problem to solve.

What piece of technology could you not live without?
I need music!  It keeps me motivated and pumped up whether I am working or hitting the gym.  So IPod, MP3, or my phone just to listen to music.

What do you like to do on the weekends?
I love to get outside on the weekends.  One of the best things about being in Central Florida is that the area & weather is great for fishing, hiking, biking, or just relaxing by the pool.

Do you have any hobbies?
Bass Fishing, watching football, & dancing (I Love ZUMBA!).

What are your top three moments in your life so far?
Sharing time with my family has provided me with the most joy in life. I like to appreciate all the small moments in life. I don’t think I could narrow it down to just 3.

What is your favorite color?
I can’t really narrow it down between green, teal, & purple!

What is your favorite food / drink?
My favorite food is also a guilty pleasure…onion rings & cookies!  By far I am a coffee fanatic.

What is your favorite musician or type of music?
I love all music!  I have everything from indie, rock, rap, hip-hop, reggae, pop, country, & classical.  I appreciate music that makes you think or brings up relatable memories, but I also enjoy a good beat to dance to.

What is your favorite sport? Do you have a favorite team?
I love football!  Of course I have to cheer for the Florida Gators & Miami Dolphins.  When they are not playing the Dolphins (typically only in pre-season), I like to see the Jacksonville Jaguars win.

What are your favorite TV shows?
I am hooked on the Biggest Loser!  I am also ashamed to admit I watch “Say Yes to the Dress”, something about dressing up gets me every time (and you wonder about my nickname).

What are your favorite movies?
My all time favorite movie is “It’s a Wonderful Life”. I have also watched “Meet the Parents” more times than I can count.

What are your favorite books / magazines?
I love Shape, Fitness, & People magazines

Twitter or Facebook? (and why)
While I love Twitter, I’d have to say Facebook.  It’s great for keeping up with family and friends, and easy to see pictures!

Tell us about your family!
I fell in love with my high school sweetheart and we are still going strong.  He is my best friend & I feel so lucky to have him in my life.

Do you have any pets?
I have two of the most adorable cats Chrissy (aka fat girl) and Corbin (aka corbos). I worked at a vet’s office and rescued these strays when they were kittens.

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
African Safari.  I think it would be a wonderful experience to be in the wild with animals that I have only seen in zoos.

If you couldn’t be a Website Consultant anymore, what career would you pursue?
I think I would be a fitness instructor – getting paid to work out seems like a great idea.

If you could choose to have any superpower, what would it be?
“Bewitched” style. I would like to be able to make anything happen with a twitch of my nose.

What tips would you give to a business that is just starting out with their first website?
I would recommend creating a plan for what you want to accomplish with the website, who you are trying to market to, and a budget for making it happen.
