What Inspires Me?
My daughter, my husband and my mom. Each of them inspires me to be a better person, work hard and never give up. I also love traveling and the ocean. Anytime I can smell the ocean air, feel the sand between my toes and watch the sunset over the sea, I’m inspired by the beauty of this Earth.
